Suzanne Aigrain

I am a lecturer in the Astrophysics Group in the School of Physics at the University of Exeter, UK.

As of January 2010, I will move to the University of Oxford to take up a University Lectureship in Astrophysics in the Department of Physics, and become a fellow of All Souls College.

From 2004 to 2007, I was a PPARC (now STFC) postodoctoral fellow at the Institute of Astronomy (IoA), University of Cambridge, UK.

I work on the detection of extrasolar planets (planets outside the solar system) via the transit method, and on the exploration of the time domain in astrophysics in general. I am particularly interested in finding and studying small (terrestrial, or even Earth-like) planets, and young planets (to understand how they form, and how their early evolution is influenced by their environment).
