I have spent the summer period (essentially) hunting for planets observable through the method of direct imaging, and testing the sensitivity of the current methods. This was undertaken in two projects: first, working with Dr Sasha Hinkley analysing the results of the Keck survey (2011-16), and later with Elisabeth Matthews taking astrometry for potential exoplanet candidates and writing programs to display the sensitivity of the SPHERE survey.
