Special interests: Since 2007, I coordinate a research team on extrasolar planets at UCL, trying to understand the chemical composition of planets in our Galaxy, how do they form and evolve and why they are so diverse. My research and my team are currently mostly funded by the Royal Society and by the European Research Council (programme ExoLights).
