We present studies of the effects of vortex-dominated fluid flows on the dynamics of the oscillatory or excitable Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction. The results of these experiments have applications for advection-reaction-diffusion dynamics in a wide range of systems including microfluidic chemical reactors, cellular-scale processes in biological systems, and blooms of phytoplankton in the oceans. Much of our work is focused on understanding how reaction fronts propagate in fluid flows. To analyze and predict the behavior of the fronts, we generalize tools developed to describe passive...

Exoplanet surveys have revealed an amazing diversity of planets orbiting other stars in the last two decades. Studying the atmospheres of representative exoplanets is the key next step in leveraging these detections to further transform our understanding of planet formation and planetary physics. Additionally, atmospheric studies are critical for determining if any of the small habitable zone exoplanets that are now being detected are truly habitable, and even inhabited. In this talk I will describe recent results from exoplanet atmosphere observations with an emphasis on results from major programs using the Hubble Space...
