CURRICULUM VITAE

JJ Hermes
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Astronomy at Boston University, focused on high-precision observations of the endpoints of stars, planets, and binary systems. Click here for more information on my research interests. I have most recently focused on monitoring white dwarf stars with the Kepler and TESS space telescopes; see k2wd.org.

Before moving to Boston in 2019, I was a Hubble Fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a postdoc at the University of Warwick in central England, and completed a Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin. I have also worked as a journalist, serving as editor-in-chief of The Daily Texan from in 2007 and as a reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C.
