Personal profile


My work involves the detection and characterisation of exoplanet atmospheres. Operating in both infrared and optical regimes, I study the atomic and molecular absorption of light as it interacts with an orbiting planet’s atmosphere. My research goals are to more frequently incorporate infrared observations into this field and develop research techniques to glean more information signals we detect.


Most of the work involves a combination of observing transits and using highly sophisticated data reduction techniques to extract the signals from observations. Or, to put it more bluntly, I like to make numbers talk to me.


I also have a small amount of experience working with the Gaia survey, searching for accreted dwarf galaxies using data mining techniques. If you have queries about my research, please feel free to email me.
