Hello! My name is Jake Turner and I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University. I'm currently studying the magnetic fields and atmospheres of exoplanets. My other research interests include Titan's atmosphere/surface and the magnetosphere of Jupiter. I finished my PhD from the University of Virginia in the summer of 2018. I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Arizona and had a postbac research position for two years after graduation at LPL. I'm originally from Walsenburg, CO.

More details about my research can be found here. A list of my publications can be found here or at my google scholar account here. Currently, I have 6 first author papers and I'm a co-I on 11 other papers.
