I am a third year PhD student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick. My supervisor is Professor Don Pollacco.



An exoplanet transiting it's star.

My research involves using transit surveys to detect exoplanets, especially those with long periods. I am currently using data from the SuperWASP telescopes located in Sutherland, South Africa & La Palma, Spain and the Kepler Space Telescope. I will also be involved with the new Next Generation Transit Survey which will become operational in late 2015.
