Research interests

The detection of extra solar planets, time-domain astronomy and the structure of galaxies

My research interests involve both theoretical and observational studies of exoplanets and Galactic structure, using primarily the technique of gravitational microlensing.

At Manchester we have developed MaBulS, the World's foremost simulator of Galactic microlensing. The simulator has been used to help improve our understanding of the structure of the inner Galaxy, as well as to develop reference designs for future space-based exoplanet surveys. I co-lead the SPEARNET survey, in collaboration with colleagues at NARIT in Thailand, to study the atmopheres of exoplanets using transmission spectroscopy.
