My interests are mostly in the detection of extrasolar planets through the transit method, but also eclipsing objects in general including binary stars and Kuiper-belt objects. I enjoy writing software and contributing to open source projects.


Major scientific contributions


NGTS - Software development, analysis tools

WASP - Detectability study
