Matteo Brogi


I am a Hubble Fellow at the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences of CU Boulder. I am developing new techinques to observe the atmospheres of exoplanets (planets that do not orbit the Sun) and determine their composition and structure.
Characterizing exoplanets is the key to understand how they form, migrate, and evolve. In the near future, it will be possible to apply these techniques to study habitable planets and detect biosignatures.
I am specialized in ground-based, high-resolution spectroscopy. In addition, I am interested in analyzing data from the Kepler satellite and in modeling light curves of small transiting rocky planets, which might be evaporating under the strong irradiation of the parent star.

I am collaborating with the exoplanet groups led by Jean-Michel Desert in Boulder and Ignas Snellen in Leiden. You can find more information about my research, publications, and interests by navigating the menu at the top of the page.
