Research interests

I am a Chancellor's Fellow at the Institute for Astronomy, part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.

My research interests center around direct imaging detection and characterization of extrasolar planets and brown dwarfs.  I am particularly interested in statistical analysis of large-scale planet surveys and developing techniques to monitor cloud patterns on brown dwarfs and exoplanets through photometric variability  I am also active both in current observational efforts and development of future instruments, including the SPHERE planet-finder at the VLT, the Near-IR Coronagraphic Imager (NICI) at Gemini-South, and the LEECH survey using LMIRCam at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT).
