Matteo Brogi


I am a last year PhD student at Leiden Observatory (Sterrewacht Leiden), where I study exoplanets in the group led by Prof. Ignas Snellen.
My research interests are mainly focused on determining the composition and structure of exoplanet atmospheres by means of a wide range of observational techniques. This allows us to shed light on the processes of planet formation, migration, and evolution, and eventually on planet habitability and the detectability of biosignatures.
I am specialized in ground-based, high-resolution spectroscopy. In addition, I am utilizing differential photometry and low-resolution spectrophotometry. Finally, I have experience in analyzing data from the Kepler satellite and modeling light curves of small rocky planets in close-in orbits, which may disintegrate under the strong irradiation of the parent star.
