Observation of exoplanet transits

Susana C. C. Barros

I will start by presenting some old PhD results on interacting binaries. Then I will present my main research topics on transiting exoplanets starting with the discovery of exoplanets. I will present the K2 pipeline and show how we find candidates for follow-up. Then I will present results of transit timing variation analysis of WASP-10, Kepler-88 and K2-19. I will finish by exemplifying the effects of stellar activity in transit observations which is the motivation for my investigator grant at IA.
