    UNIVERSITY PROJECTS

    Comparison of Extrasolar Planet Detection Methods

    Exoplanets are a new field of study and steadily becoming one of the most interesting fields in astronomy. In this review, I discussed the importance of today’s main detection methods of exoplanets. Focussing on the Doppler and Transit methods as these are the most sensitive to small planets, particularly around small stars (or M-dwarfs). This was done by using Keplerian and Doppler data sets to create plots on Excel to compare with my model data sets to make comparisons. I also looked at the habitable zones of these planets and outline the importance of understanding this for the search of extra-terrestrial life and answering one of mankind’s deepest questions; are we alone?

     

    Modelling Changes in Planet Transit Time Variations (TTVs)

    Transit timing variations (TTVs) are a powerful method for detecting non-transiting planets that are gravitationally interacting with other planets. I found that increasing the mass of the additional planet has a dependency on the TTV amplitude, this is due to the larger mass perturbing the smaller mass. In the project, I used other developers Fortran code remotely using a Linux terminal and then developed Java code to read the results for further analysis. Throughout the project, I used Excel to create data sets and plots to help clarify my findings.

     

    As part of the completion of my projects, weekly meetings were held between myself and my adviser. During these meetings, I would present my work and explain my results, indicating where I intended to move my research too next and my plan to ensure its completion in a timely manner.

I had drum lessons once a week for 2 years before moving for university and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges my teacher brought to me each week, enticing me to grow and adapt to the new challenges ahead. Another reason being it was a nice change from my studies.

    Music: I enjoy many genres of music and can appreciate anything from rock music to classical, my favourite being rock music from bands such as The Beatles, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Courteeners.

    Movies and TV-series: I enjoy many genres of movies, my favourite being Sci-fi and Fantasy. Some being The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Shawshank Redemption and Saving Private Ryan.
