Stassun and his research team are making the most precise measurements to date for millions of stars in order to propel the discovery of “Earth 2.0.” He believes that innovation is fueled by diversity and aims to set the example for inclusive excellence in all its dimensions, including gender, race, ethnicity, and neurodiversity, through local- and national-scale efforts. Stassun established a model undergraduate program for early and sustained research immersion and mentoring support to increase the retention of women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities in physical sciences majors.
