Marton Hidas


I obtained my PhD from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia in 2005. My work there involved setting up a new search for transiting extrasolar planets using the 0.5m Automated Patrol Telescope at Siding Spring Observatory (Australia). I started as a postdoc at LCOGT/UCSB in January 2007. I have been using the LCOGT telescopes to help confirm transiting extrasolar planet candidates, and search for transit-timing variations in known planets. For 2009 I will be based at the University of Sydney, Australia, but continuing the same research work. I will also be working on commissioning the new Spectral cameras, and learning a bit about stellar oscillations.
