Personal profile

Research overview

Anna is a REVEAL Research Fellow, interested in the science of exoplanets: the planets orbiting other Suns. She is specialising on comprehending and mitigating the effects of surface variabilities on the parent stars, which either mimic or hide the radial velocity (RV) signal from the orbiting planet/s.

As a World-leading St Andrews Doctoral scholar, she worked on the detection & characterization of low mass, long-period exoplanets. As a collaborator of HARPS-N Science Team, she continues to explore the high-precision radial-velocity measurements with stellar activity characterisation to push the limits on planetary mass determination down towards the Earth-mass regime.
