Asteroseismic probes of stellar activity cycles

Using data from the NASA Kepler and TESS missions, this project will use subtle changes to the properties of stellar oscillations to explore the stellar cycle properties of Sun-like stars and more evolved sub-giants. Read more

Observations and methods to discover circumbinary planets

Circumbinary planets orbit around both stars at once, like Tatooine in Starwars. Such planets are rare, but it is important to understand better the processes behind planet formation and orbital evolution. Read more

Stress-strain measurements on high-temperature superconductors

Measurement of stress-strain relationships is a completely standard technique in mechanical engineering and material science, but it is new in the study of quantum materials. Read more

Observing the Sun as a star

The Sun is the only star we know for sure has no orbiting planets in the data - since we can remove them perfectly. That makes it the perfect star to study and eventually aid the search for small planets orbiting other stars. Read more

Observations and methods to characterise small planets around Sun-like stars

Finding and characterising planets like Earth are hindered by variable signals from the star itself. Especially in radial velocity data, essential to measure a planet's mass, these signals are often larger than the planet signals. Read more

Generative Models and Machine Learning in Astrophysics

Science and our quest to understand and explain the Universe around us requires interpretability in our models. Many models and especially machine learning models can appear to be a 'black box' that produces answers without understanding. Read more

Quantum Spin Dynamics in Magnets

Quantum magnets are fascinating physical systems for many reasons. They realise a rich variety of exotic quantum states of matter with entanglement or topological properties. Read more

Theory for generating Quantum Entangled states in hybrid nanophotonic cavities

When light illuminates an object, it is transmitted and reflected. By controlling its geometry at the nanoscale, one can direct and concentrate light at extremely small and sub-wavelength volumes, tremendously increasing the light intensity at the same time. Read more
