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 measure their physical and chemical properties.
Characterising exoplanets is key to understanding how they form and evolve. My group is developing observational techniques that will be used in the future to target temperate planets and seek potential signatures of life.
My group focusses on both data analysis and modelling of exoplanet spectra. We mostly work with ground-based, high-resolution infrared spectroscopy, and occasionally with broad-band photometry both with ground-based and space telescopes.
