Dr Sarah Rugheimer is an astrophysicist working on how to detect life on an exoplanet. Her research interests are modelling the atmosphere and climate of extrasolar planets with a particular focus on atmospheric biosignatures in Earth-like planets as well as modelling early Earth conditions. Her focus has been on the star-planet interaction and how the UV environment of the host star influences the atmosphere and detectable features of terrestrial worlds.
Sarah is an advocate for Women in STEM, hosting a resource page as well as mentoring students and co-hosting a podcast called Self-care with Drs. Sarah aimed at junior scientists navigating academia. She is also involved with outreach and has been on NPR and BBC discussing her work on modelling the atmosphere and climate of extrasolar planets.
