About

1-DSC_0259.NEFI’m Hugh Osborn, a postdoctoral researcher at the Lab of Astrophysics of Marseille (LAM). My research involves using data from various telescopes to discover exoplanets as they transit across their parent stars. That has previously involved ground-based telescopes such as WASP and space-based observatories like Kepler and K2. I am currently focussed on studying the potential ability of the future ESA mission PLATO to detect and confirm earthlike exoplanets.

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

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 have previously written a personal science blog, travel blogs and numerous science articles, including in the London Student for which I was Science Editor for one year.
