I have done photometric time series analysis of a young open cluster, searching for variable stars, eclipsing binaries and transits of extraterrestrial planets.

I have worked on high resolution echelle spectrographs build from catalogue components. My main areas were testing and improving the instrument in development. Furthermore, I provided a flexible data reduction package to efficiently analyse the data from the different versions of the spectrograph. The package, HiFLEx, can also be used to analyse data from other instruments and was tested on HARPS.
