I am an assistant professor in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick.
My research focusses on the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars (exoplanets). I use spectroscopic observations to determine their physical and chemical properties.
Characterising exoplanets is the key to understanding how they form and evolve. I am developing observational techniques that will be used in the future to target habitable planets and recognise potential signatures of life.
I am a specialist in high-resolution infrared spectroscopy, ground-based observations, and broad-band photometry both with ground-based and space telescopes. Please have a look at my personal webpage for more information about my research.
An up-to-date list of scientific publications can be found here (link to SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System).
I occasionally tweet as @MattBrogi.
