Drake Deming works on characterization of the atmospheres of extrasolar planets using transit and eclipse techniques. He observes transiting exoplanetary systems using the Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes, and also using ground-based telescopes. He is a Co-Investigator for the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), and is currently the Chair of the Atmospheric Characterization Working Group for TESS. Drake is currently preparing for observations of TESS planets using JWST. He also has an interest in spectroscopy of planetary atmospheres in the Solar System, as well as stellar spectroscopy.
