Kevin Heng

I am currently a professor of astronomy and planetary science at the University of Bern, Switzerland, where I also serve as the Director of the Center for Space and Habitability.  My main interests are in the theory, simulation and phenomenology of exoplanetary atmospheres, including atmospheric radiative transfer, chemistry, fluid dynamics and data inversion methods.  I am a core science team member of the CHEOPS mission of ESA and a STDT member of the LUVOIR mission concept of NASA.  I graduated with my Ph.D from APS and JILA in 2007, under the supervision of Prof. Dick McCray.
