Joshua Pepper at Lehigh University

Lehigh University Joshua PepperI am an astronomer and assistant professor at the Department of Physics of Lehigh University.  My research involves the discovery of extrasolar planets; planets that orbit stars other than our sun. The main focus of my research is the KELT project - a pair of small, wide-field telescopes that we are using to search for transiting planets around bright stars. See my research page for more information.

I received my PhD from the Department of Astronomy at The Ohio State University and I received my undergraduate degree at Princeton University.  Previously, I was the VIDA postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vanderbilt University.

One of the big recent discoveries from the KELT collaboration was an exciting exoplanet discovery that made the cover of Nature, KELT-9b!
