Adric Riedel

Postdoctoral Researcher
New York City
I am a postdoctoral researcher working with the BDNYC group (www.bdnyc.org) at Hunter College (hunter.cuny.edu) and the American Museum of Natural History (www.amnh.org). I have always worked on nearby low mass stars, from my undergraduate years at Villanova University, to my PhD work at Georgia State University in the RECONS group (www.recons.org). I am currently looking at the very lowest mass objects near the Sun, and studying the kinematics and age-determining properties of the members of the nearby young moving groups (beta Pictoris, TW Hydra, and the like). As someone interested in teaching, I have worked on ways to present scientific principles in an easy-to-grasp form, and many of the visualizations are here on Figshare.
