New Staff in Physics

Emma MacPherson

My goal is to improve terahertz imaging and spectroscopy techniques for non-invasive diagnosis and monitoring of skin conditions including, but not limited to, skin cancer. I work on several aspects of terahertz imaging and spectroscopy e.g. developing faster THz image data acquisition approaches, devising algorithms to improve the accuracy of THz spectroscopy and investigating potential biomedical applications of terahertz technology.

Matteo Brogi


I work on characterising the atmospheres of planets around other stars (exoplanets), with the aim of determining their composition, structure, and energy balance. I primarily use observations at high spectral resolution taken with ground-based telescopes. Before moving to Warwick I was a NASA Hubble Fellow at the University of Colorado Boulder, in the USA. I received my PhD from Leiden University, in the Netherlands.

Matteo joins the Astronomy & Astrophysics group as an Assistant Professor working on the PLATO project.

Klaas Wiersema


Klaas joins the department as a Research Fellow in Astronomy and Astrophysics.

I will be working on follow-up observations of transient sources, for prof. Andrew Levan.

My main research interests are relativistic jet sources, particularly gamma-ray bursts, and electro-magnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources. I did my PhD at the Anton Pannekoek Institute of the University of Amsterdam; and after that worked as postdoctoral fellow at the University of Leicester.

Daniel Bayliss


I work on discovering and characterising planets outside our Solar System (exoplanets), primarily via the transit and radial velocity methods. I work on both ground-based and space-based missions, currently focusing on NGTS and K2 while preparing for the future TESS and PLATO missions. I did my undergraduate degree in New Zealand, then completed my PhD at Mt Stromlo Observatory in Australia. After a 5-year post-doc in Australia I moved to Switzerland where I worked at Geneva Observatory over the last 3 years.

Daniel joins the Astronomy & Astrophysics group as an Assistant Professor working on the PLATO project.
