Professor Stan Metchev

Professor Stan Metchev has been officially confirmed as a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Exoplanets.

The Western News writes, "Metchev uses extreme-contrast imaging technologies to study exoplanets – planets outside our solar system – and ‘brown dwarfs,’ which form as stars do, but lack the mass to fuse atoms continuously and blossom into full-fledged stars."
