Tidal flows in extrasolar planets and stars

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
Since 1995 astronomers have discovered and partially characterised several thousand extrasolar planets. Many planets have masses similar to Jupiter's, and orbit their host stars in only a few Earth days -- a fascinating class of planets that we refer to as hot Jupiters. Read more

Linking exoplanet detection to formation: population synthesis

The possibility of planets orbiting other stars has been a topic of fascination for centuries. We are the first generation that has brought these planets – now known as exoplanets – from the realm of science-fiction into that of science. 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

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

(STFC) BUILDING ROCKY PLANETS – CONSTRAINING MAGMA OCEAN BEHAVIOUR WITH EXPERIMENTAL PETROLOGY

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
This project will investigate the evolution of rocky planets, with a particular focus on investigating how evolving magma oceans produce the source regions from which different suites of planetary rock samples are ultimately derived. Read more
