Detection and characterisation of transiting exoplanets
Abstract / Resumo
I will present my main research topics on transiting exoplanets. I will star by exemplifying the discovery of exoplanets from the K2 mission. I will present the K2 pipeline and show how we find candidates that are later confirmed with follow-up observations. 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 and how they affect the derived transit parameters.
