Research: Star-Planet Interactions

To study the interactions of planets and their host stars, I search for signs of planetary emission in stellar spectra. One possible scenario is the is induced activity in the planets atmosphere caused by ionization of the atmosphere due to stellar winds. I search for non thermal and auroral emission in high resolution spectra of stars hosting transiting planets.
