Dr James McCormac

I am a post-doctral research fellow working on the Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS). NGTS is a new wide-field survey aimed at discovering Neptune and super-Earth sized exoplanets around bright (V<13) stars in the Southern sky. NGTS is located at ESO's Cerro Paranal observatory, Chile and is expected to begin operations at the start of 2015.

I also work as part the SuperWASP project, conducting follow up photometry of exoplanet candidates using the the 0.4m Near Infra-red Transiting ExoplanetS (NITES) telescope on La Palma. I have been involved with the new Warwick 1m telescope project, which is also located on La Palma.

In my spare time I enjoy running.
