Joined UW in
Kim Bott’s research centres around planetary atmospheres and polarimetry, combining instrumentation, observation, and computer models. Her work at UW is focused on determining the usefulness of polarimetry in exoplanet characterisation, and also on the habitability of terrestrial worlds orbiting M dwarfs. Her previous work involved applications of polarimetry to debris disks, stars and the ISM; combining polarimetry with transit and secondary eclipse data for hot Jupiters; and the measurement of isotopes in the atmospheres of ice giants.
