KASI-Arizona Joint Postdoctoral Fellowship

The KASI-Arizona Joint Postdoctoral Fellowship for Advanced Study in Astronomy and Astrophysics is a collaboration between Steward Observatory and the Korea Astronomy and Space Institute.  During the four years of this fellowship, the fellow spends two years at Steward Observatory and two years at KASI (Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute) in Daejeon, Korea. This postdoctoral fellowship provides an opportunity for an exceptional recent Ph.D. recipient to pursue a program of research in any area of theoretical or observational astronomy or astrophysics. The emphasis is on proposed research activities that promote collaboration between KASI and Steward Observatory.   The Fellow is affiliated with both institutions, and has access to all the resources and facilities of both parties throughout the four years. Additional information about KASI can be found at and


Current KASI-Arizona Fellows


Jinhee Lee

Jinhee’s research interest includes low-mass stars and exoplanets. She has focused on characterizing young nearby stars, mainly moving group members. She made the BAMG (Bayesian Analysis of Moving Groups) tool for calculating the membership probability of moving groups. She is now focusing on characterizing exoplanets using high-resolution spectra.

Garreth Martin

Garreth joined Steward Observatory in the fall of 2019. His research lies at the interface between observational and theoretical astronomy, combining state-of-the-art hydrodynamical simulations, survey data and machine-learning techniques. He is interested in how the diversity of present-day galaxy populations arises during their assembly and how underlying processes like mergers, feedback and environmental processes drive these changes. His current work focusses on the formation mechanisms, evolution and morphology of low-surface-brightness galaxy populations that have gone almost unnoticed in previous wide-area surveys and represent an important additional axis for constraining our understanding of galaxy evolution.
