Siddharth Gandhi

I am an assistant professor in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick. My work focuses on atmospheric modelling of exoplanets and comparisons with space and ground based observations to constrain their properties, with the eventual goal of studying rocky Earth-like planets in the habitable zone which have the potential for biosignatures.

My Research

My research is focused on answering some of the fundamental questions in exoplanetary science. These include:

  • How do planets form, migrate and evolve?

  • How diverse are atmospheric processes on exoplanets?

  • How unique is the Solar System in an exoplanet context?

  • How common are habitable/Earth-like planets?

You can find information about me on my website. Feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more about my research.

About Me

I joined the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick in October 2023. Previously I have been an Oort fellow at Leiden University in The Netherlands between Oct 2021-Sept 2023, and Research Fellow at Warwick between July 2019-Sept 2021. I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge, advised by Prof Nikku Madhusudhan.
