About

I’m Hugh Osborn, a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics. My research focuses on discovering and characterising exoplanets as they transit across their parent stars.

I am currently the CHESS Fellow at both the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics (MA, USA) and the University of Bern (Switzerland). This fellowship involves being at the overlap of both the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and ESA’s Characterising Exoplanet Satellite (Cheops).

After growing up in Norwich, UK, I studied for four years at University College London (UCL) before undertaking a PhD at the University of Warwick, which I completed in 2017. I then worked as a Postdoc at the Lab of Astrophysics of Marseille (LAM) before starting my current fellowship in late 2019.

In my blog Lost In Transits, I write about all things exoplanetary from atmospheres to astrobiology. I also run the monthly exoplanetary podcast exocast.
