Research Statement

Dr. Ruth Murray-Clay studies the formation and evolution of planetary systems, including our solar system.� Her theoretical work investigates the birth of planets in gas disks orbiting young stars, dynamical evolution of planetary orbits, and the evolution of atmospheres due to escape over cosmic time.� Her goal is to determine the processes that shape the diversity of planetary systems we see today and to place our solar system in cosmic context.
