My research focuses on citizen-powered exoplanet discoveries using TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) data via Planet Hunters TESS. As the leader of this exciting project I collate the returns from the citizen science campaigns, analyse them, and following-up on the most promising detections using ground based facilities. The analysis of the extremely large time-series data sets has a strong emphasis on applying various statistical processes, as well as using machine learning in order detect exciting new planet systems that were missed by the main pipelines and other teams of professional astronomers.
