Astrophiz98: Dr. Belinda Nicholson - hunting for exoplanets

Introduction

Today’s feature interview is with planet hunter Dr. Belinda Nicholson, Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the University of Oxford, Department of Physics.

Belinda’s current research involves exoplanet-hunting using exotic telescope data. Previously she has investigated the behaviour of ‘teenage’ stars, and her work has taken her all over Australia and the world, from presenting her work at conferences in Europe and the United States to collecting data on mountains in New South Wales and South America. Right now, she’s in Oxford / London.
