Joshua Pepper at Lehigh University

I 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.
