I spent the day at Yale with Hou, talking with Debra Fischer and Christian Schwab about various possible exoplanet projects we might do together. In the short term we came up with a few easy projects for Hou's fast sampling methods, including looking at velocity offsets between different instruments and comparing exoplanet models for stellar velocity residuals with stellar oscillation models. For the longer term, we discussed how the velocities are measured, which is extremely non-trivial, and also the Kepler data, many of which are already public. I have a very good feeling that we have started a productive collaboration.
