Dr Campante is a Research Fellow in the field of Asteroseismology. He devotes most of his time to the asteroseismic investigation of solar-type stars and red giants, having developed a special interest in the characterization of exoplanet-host stars. He is co-author on over 50 research papers in scientific journals (including Nature and Science) in the fields of stellar physics, stellar variability, and exoplanetology.
He has been an active contributor to the asteroseismic programme of the NASA Kepler mission. He has also contributed to the analysis of seismic targets observed by the CoRoT space mission and during ground-based campaigns.
Tiago Campante qualified with a BSc in Physics/Applied Mathematics from the Universidade do Porto (Portugal) in 2007. He went on to study for a PhD in Astronomy at the same University, having spent half of his doctoral studies at Aarhus Universitet (Denmark). In 2012, shortly after concluding his PhD (with distinction), he joined the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham as a Research Fellow in the field of Asteroseismology.
