Babatunde Akinsanmi obtained his Bachelor's degree in Physics from the Federal University of Technology Akure in 2010. He was awarded the M.Sc. in Astronomy by the University of Porto in 2017 and has since began a Ph.D in Astronomy at the same university in collaboration with the Institute of Astronomy in Porto (IA). He began a 2-year Data science fellowship by the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope Corporation in 2017.
His main research interest is in the field of exoplanets involving the search and characterisation of exoplanets using the transit and radial velocity methods. He specifically works on detecting novel exoplanetary features such as rings, tidal deformation and rotation-induced oblateness in exoplanets.
