I am a PhD student in the Exeter astrophysics department, and have just entered my second year. I studied for my MPhys at Durham university from 2006-2010. My work focuses on the radial velocity method of planet detection, specifically the statistics behind the detectability of low mass planets discovered by HARPS (High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher). Though I am now moving on to theoretical planetary atmospheric line profiles. My supervisor is Prof. Frederic Pont.
