Projects

Several surveys are searching for transiting exoplanets. Here I plan to describe shortly the projects I am working on:

 

Another project of mine is the contribution to the DFG SPP 1992, “Exploring the Diversity of Extrasolar Planets”. As part of this SPP (Schwerpunkt Programm) I submitted a proposal for a PhD position to the DFG to study the so called sub-jovian desert, which describes the dearth of very hot, sub-jovian / super Earth planets. This project aims to define the borders of this region using NGTS data.

Additionally I was involveld in the corrdination for the SPP review colloquium and am currently also involveld in organisational and management matters regarding SPP1992.
