Imke de Pater

Professor emerita and Professor of the Graduate School of EPS & Astronomy

Professor de Pater's research interests include: infrared observations using adaptive optics on world-class 8-10 m telescopes and JWST of e.g., the giant planets, their ring systems, and the satellites Titan and Io. She also continues to observe these objects at radio wavelengths using the Very Large Array and ALMA.

Many exciting discoveries, including e.g., impacts on Jupiter, volcanism on Io, storms on Titan and the Giant planets, and planetary rings are described on her webpages.
