I'm interested in the properties of extrasolar planets and their host stars.

For my thesis I have been working with the MEarth Project. MEarth consists of 2 arrays of 8 telescopes each, one in the Northern hemisphere at Mt. Hopkins, Arizona, and the other in the Southern hemisphere at CTIO, Chile.

MEarth is a planet hunting facility, designed to monitor the nearby low-mass M dwarfs for transiting planets. These planets wil be the best planets for detailed characterization.
