Soren Meibom



Soren studies Sun-like (cool) stars in open star clusters. He uses high-precision time-series photometric and spectroscopic observations of single and binary stars and make synergistic use of ground- and space-based facilities to targets clusters with ages from a few million to several billion years of age. He was a member of the science team behind NASA's Kepler mission and is the PI of The Kepler Cluster Study - a study of 4 clusters within Kepler's field of view. His current studies include Kepler (and K2) searches for exoplanets in open clusters, a study of the relationships between stellar rotation and stellar age and mass (Gyrochronology and angular momentum evolution), and a study of the rotation-activity classification of cool single and binary stars with Chandra (NASA's X-ray observatory).
