João N. T. Gomes da Silva


Biographic Notes
João Gomes da Silva is a researcher at IA. He was awarded a first degree in Physics and Astronomy by The University of Glasgow in 2007, a Master degree by the University of Porto in 2009 and a PhD by the University of Porto in 2014. He is a member of CAUP since 2007 and IA since 2018.

Current research interests focus on stellar activity research and exoplanets detection and characterisation. In particular in the study of methods to measure and attenuate stellar intrinsic noise, at all timescales, when using the radial velocity method to detect exoplanets.

He has developed the software package ACTIN, available at GitHub.
