Matthew Kenworthy

…is an Associate Professor at Leiden Observatory in the Faculty of Science, part of Leiden University. My research includes the search for extrasolar planetary systems through direct imaging, interpreting unusual light curves as the transits of giant exorings around exoplanets, and developing and deploying instrumentation to discover them, such as coronagraphic optics and point spread function reconstruction techniques. I teach courses on exoplanets, instrumentation and introductory astronomy.

Here is my Curriculum Vitae (2018 January 02) and a short biography.
