I am a Hubble Fellow at the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences of CU Boulder. I observe the atmospheres of extrasolar planets with the aim of determining their composition and structure.
I am collaborating with the exoplanet groups led by Jean-Michel Desert in Boulder and Ignas Snellen in Leiden. Feel free to contact me at matteo [dot] brogi [at] colorado [dot] edu, and thanks for visiting!
Characterizing exoplanets is the key to understanding how they form, migrate, and evolve. In the near future, exoplanet observations will target habitable planets and their possible signatures of life.
My research is focused on 1) spectroscopic observations at both high and low resolution, 2) analysis of light curves of the Kepler spacecraft, and 3) modeling light curves of small transiting rocky planets, which might be evaporating under the strong irradiation of the parent star.
