I am a third year PhD student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick. My supervisor is Professor Don Pollacco.
|An exoplanet transiting it's star.|
My research involves using transit surveys to detect exoplanets, especially those with long periods. I am currently using data from the SuperWASP telescopes located in Sutherland, South Africa & La Palma, Spain and the Kepler Space Telescope. I will also be involved with the new Next Generation Transit Survey which will become operational in late 2015.
