Welcome to my website!


My name is Darryl Seligman and I am a graduate student and Gruber Fellow in the Astronomy Department at Yale University.

I am working with my advisor, Gregory Laughlin, on planet formation. I primarily study the hydrodynamics of accretion disks and protoplanetary disks.

Previously, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, Magna Cum Laude, with degrees in mathematics and physics. I spent a summer in Tucson, AZ at the National Solar Observatory on a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates grant. Before coming to Yale, I wrote a paper with my advisor Dr. Gordon Petrie on magnetic energy transport mechanisms driving solar flares.

At Yale, I started and currently run the Exoplanet Journal Club for our Exoplanets Group led by Debra Fischer and Gregory Laughlin. If you are interested in giving a talk at our Journal Club, feel free to contact me!

In my free time I enjoys travelling, playing sports, being in the outdoors and science outreach!
