James McCormac

I am a senior research fellow at the University of Warwick working in the field of transiting exoplanets. I'm currently part of the PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations (PLATO) space mission where my focus is on the long-term detrending of systematic noise. PLATO is a European Space Agency medium class mission to be launched in 2026 with the goal of discovering and characterising Earth-like planets around Sun-like stars. I am also a part-time project manager for the Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer (GOTO) project. I previously worked on the Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS) as the operations postdoc. NGTS is a robotic observatory dedicated to transiting exoplanet science. It is located in the southern hemisphere at ESO's Paranal Observatory, Chile. I'm also involved in the SuperWASP and W1m projects at Warwick. A list of my publications can be found here.
