I studied for my PhD at both Queens University Belfast and Warwick, under the supervision of Prof Don Pollacco. My research was focused on exoplanets, particularly those orbiting around binary stars. This involved attempting to analyse the population of such planets using the Kepler space telescope, as well as with the Wide Angle Search for Planets (WASP) project. As a research fellow at Warwick I will be continuing this work, as well as using the K2 mission data to study planets and variable stars. I will also be working on new methods to detect exoplanetary magnetic fields.
