About

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.

Qualifications

  • PhD in Astronomy, Universidade do Porto (Portugal), 2012
  • BSc in Physics/Applied Mathematics, Universidade do Porto (Portugal), 2007

Biography

Tiago Campante qualified with a BSc in Physics/Applied Mathematics from the Universidade do Porto (Portugal) in 2007.
