Tabetha Suzanne Boyajian (born c. 1980) is an American Astronomer on faculty at Louisiana State University .   She was a post-doctoral fellow 2012-16 at Yale University , working with Debra Fischer .  Boyajian is active in the Astronomical areas or stellar interferometry , stellar spectroscopy , exoplanet research , and high angular resolution astronomy, all bijzonder at optical and infrared wavelengths. She is the lead author of the September 2015 paper Where’s the Flux? welke Investigates the highly unusual light curve or KIC 8462852 ;  the star has leg colloquially named Tabby’s Star in her honor. 
Boyajian RECEIVED a BS degree from the College of Charleston in 2003, an MS degree in Physics from Georgia State University in 2005 and a Ph.D. degree from the university together in 2009.  She studied the sizes of nearby stars similar to the Sun, using the University’s Chara array , a long-baseline optical and infrared interferometer located in the euro at Mount Wilson Observatory . Boyajian was Awarded a Hubble Fellowship , and stayed at Georgia to study sizes or nearby stars much narrower dan the Sun and stars with planets.   Fellow Astronomer Sarah Ballard has-used Boyajian’s “truly remarkable”  work customizing this “precious sample”  or data on nearby small stars for the “characterization by proxy” method to help Investigate the far more distant exoplanet Kepler-61b .  
As of 2015 , Boyajian’s secretary and steering committee member of Division G Stars and Stellar Physics of the International Astronomical Union . 
Boyajian been turned manager of the Planet Hunters project welke amateurs analyseren data from the Kepler space observatory.
