Ben Setterholm receives NASA Graduate Fellowship

Congratulations to Ben Setterholm on receiving the NASA FINESST Fellowship this year!

The title of his research project is “Imaging the Terrestrial Planet-Forming Region of Young Star Disks” and he will develop new observing techniques and imaging algorithms using the CHARA/MIRC-X and MYSTIC combiners.  We hope to learn more about the initial conditions of terrestrial planet formation by zooming in to look at the gas and dust only a few au from very young stars.
