David Kipping is a 30-year old astrophysicist working at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics as a Menzel Fellow. He grew up in the UK but emigrated to the USA five years ago. He researches a variety of topics related to extrasolar planets, but his main project is searching for exomoons. Outside of astronomy, he is enjoying his first few weeks as a new father and love exploring the New England area.
