Exoplanet Hunting At Nexus With The Institute Of Physics

By on Sep 29, 2017 in Blog |

We were delighted to host Elizabeth Matthews from the Institute of Physics and the University of Exeter at Nexus today. Elizabeth delivered a fascinating lecture on how physicists are hunting for exoplanets around stars in our galaxy.

It was truly inspiring to hear how Elizabeth published her first paper using her doctoral research, which led to new exoplanet detections using data from cutting edge ground based space telescopes.

The lecture was very well attended and Elizabeth fielded many questions from the audience about the work she is doing.
