Daniel Bayliss

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.

I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow who works on planetary systems around other stars, in particular the small body populations that are analogues of the asteroids and comets in the Solar System. I did my undergraduate study in New Zealand, my PhD in Australia, and worked in Cambridge for the last 8 years as a postdoc.

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

Jon Peters

jpeters

I completed my PhD at Warwick and I am joining to continue my work under Prof Marin Alexe and Dr Ana Sanchez as part of the electron microscopy group. My work involves the application of advanced electron microscopy to ferroelectrics, in particular using atomic resolution imaging to measure polarisation with sub-nanometre spatial resolution.
