David V Martin
I am a NASA Sagan Fellow at The Ohio State University. I am an astrophysicist primarily interested in discovering and understanding both exoplanets and multi-star systems. I am particularly interested in constructing observing programs that look for planets in multi-star systems, and then determining theoretical models to explain the observations. I also work on orbital dynamic, evolved stellar systems (e.g. white dwarfs and black holes) and planet and binary formation.
Before coming to OSU I did my PhD at the Université de Genève (download thesis here) and a postdoc at The University of Chicago.
Beyond astrophysics... I'm a bit of a sports nut. I played and watched cricket and Australian Football (Aussie Rules) since I was a kid. In a colder climate I now play ice hockey, albeit rather poorly.
I play guitar, bass and drums from time to time, love listening to heavy metal, classic rock, classical piano. I'm a hobbyest video game creator and pre-covid used to enjoy traveling.
