discovering and studying new worlds to consolidate our understanding of planets and habitats. 

Artem Burdanov

Postdoctoral Associate 

I'm a postdoctoral associate at the MIT EAPS department. I work with Dr. Julien de Wit in the framework of the SPECULOOS project. I manage operations and do scientific exploitation of the SPECULOOS North facility. I have taken part in the TRAPPIST project, which is a prototype of the SPECULOOS project. Throughout my work in this project I took part in the discovery of TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets and consequent follow-up observations with ground-based optical and IR telescopes. I have also worked on the detection and characterization of new transiting gas giant exoplanets around solar-type stars in the context of the WASP and GPX wide-field surveys.
