A Search for Transit Timing Variations in the Exoplanet HAT-P-36 b: Analyzing Eight New Data Sets

  10:20 - 10:30

In 2016, Esseck and Weinberg hypothesized that the Hot Jupiter HAT-P-36 b is experiencing rapid orbital decay and that, consequently, we would be able to detect slight Transit Timing Variations in the near future. I sought to verify this claim by using the Harvard and Smithsonian MicroObservatory and EXOPlanet Transit Interpretation Code to image and analyze eight transits of HAT-P-36 b between the months of March and May 2022.
