Matthew Hoskin

I started my PhD project in September 2017, with the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick. My supervisor is Prof. Boris Gänsicke.

I work with observational data of metal-polluted white dwarf atmospheres, using ultraviolet spectroscopy from the Hubble Space Telescope Cosmic Origins Spectrograph, alongside optical spectroscopy. The aim of this work is to determine the bulk chemical composition of rocky bodies in these evolved star systems, as well as the frequency of planetary systems around white dwarfs.

I also co-manage the Warwick planetarium as part of my teaching responsibilities.
