Hi, that's me. I'm a lecturer at the Unversity College London working in the field of extrasolar planet characterisation. I specialise in the data analysis and atmospheric modelling of exoplanet atmospheres. Exoplanets are planets that orbit other stars. When one of these planets happens to pass between its host star and us, some of the star's light filters through the atmosphere of that planet. Now that is a tiny amount and extremely hard to detect with our current technology. For this reason, I focus my research on using machine learning techniques to 'learn' how to best mine for those tiny planetary signals hidden within the noise of the instrument and star. I am the PI of the European Research Council funded project ExoAI, which focuses on implementing deep learning and machine learning in exoplanet and solar system science. If you want to know more about the work of me and my team, have a look at the ExoAI website.
