Beatriz Campos Estrada is Portuguese astrophysicist, currently doing her PhD in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute and the Austrian Space Research Institute. She is a part of the european CHAMELEON Marie-Curie innovative training network. Before moving to Copenhagen for her PhD, Beatriz lived in London for 4 years, where she studied for a MSc in Physics at Imperial College London. This is where she first fell in love with her major research interest: extrasolar planets, also known as exoplanets.

Beatriz’s research ranges from studying the atmospheres of gas giant exoplanets, to studying the evolution path and composition of smaller, rocky exoplanets. She does this by making computational models that can realistically help the community understand more about the worlds outside our Solar System – and maybe understand our own world a tiny bit better.
