Associate Curator, Department of Astrophysics, Division of Physical Sciences
Assistant Professor, Richard Gilder Graduate School
Dr. Angus is an Associate Curator of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History. She specializes in measuring the ages of stars and planets in the Milky Way Galaxy using large astronomical surveys and space telescopes such as Kepler, TESS and Gaia. She uses the ages of stars to study the dynamical and atmospheric evolution of planetary systems, and is particularly interested in studying formation and evolution pathways for habitable planets. She also studies the rotation and magnetism of stars, and the effects of stellar magnetism on planets. She uses statistical data analysis and machine learning methods throughout her research.
