Professor William Chaplin

Professor William Chaplin

Professor of Astrophysics

School of Physics and Astronomy

Bill Chaplin is currently head of the Solar & Stellar Physics research group and Deputy Head of the School of Physics and Astronomy at Birmingham. His research is focused on using observations of the natural oscillations of the Sun (helioseismology) and other stars (asteroseismology) to further our understanding of stellar evolution theory, the solar cycle and stellar variability more ...

Dr Guy Davies

Lecturer in Astrophysics

School of Physics and Astronomy

Guy R. Davies is a Lecturer in Astrophysics. He uses the sounds of the Sun and stars in an attempt to understand the world around us, with a particular focus on the development and application of novel, advanced data-analysis techniques (including applications of machine learning and Bayesian inference).  He is an enthusiastic teacher and communicator on all aspects of astrophysics and is ...

Professor Amaury Triaud

Professor Amaury Triaud

Professor of Exoplanetology
Birmingham Fellow

School of Physics and Astronomy

A regular visitor to observatories in the Atacama desert, Professor Amaury Triaud is the discoverer of over one hundred exoplanet planets (planets which orbit stars other than the Sun). His research concentrates on extracting empirical evidence about the physical processes that lead to the formation and evolution of planets. His main attention is on discovering and investigating ...
