Ben Cooke

I am a PhD student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick working with my supervisor, Prof. Don Pollacco.

My research focusses on the discovery and characterisation of exoplanets via the transit method. I am currently involved in using data from the SuperWASP mission in preparation for TESS which launched 18 April 2018 and is shortly to begin data collection. From there I will primarily focus on monotransits, exoplanets which transit their host star just once during our observations. These planets are less well constrained and require careful follow-up to confirm.
