New Post-graduate students join the Microlensing/Time-Domain Astrophysics group

A warm welcome to the newly arrived post-graduate students who have joined me in working on microlensing and time-domain astronomy!

Ashna Sharan (PhD candidate) has started her research into using GPU processors to model planetary microlensing events. Alex Li (PhD candidate) is investigating eclipsing binary events in the MOA database, looking for signals owing to extra-solar planets. Martin Donachie (MSc candidate) is developing algorithms to classify the millions of light curves in the MOA database.
