Professor of Astrophysics, Keele University

I lead Keele's involvement in the WASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) project, searching for planets around other stars. We operate the WASP-South observatory, which monitors hundreds of thousands of stars looking for small dips in their lightcurves when a planet transits in front of its star. WASP-South has now found many of the brightest transiting exoplanets in the Southern hemisphere.
