Jacob Bean's current research focuses on the study of extrasolar planetary systems. He uses a variety of ground- and space-based facilities to detect and characterize planets around nearby stars. His particular interests are in studying planets around low-mass stars and in probing the atmospheres of the smallest known exoplanets.
