Flavia Amadio is doing a Ph.D. at the Centre for ExoLife Sciences at University of Copenhagen in Denmark and at Institute of Astronomy at KU Leuven, Belgium. She is a part of the european CHAMELEON Marie-Curie innovative training network. She studied Physics for her bachelor’s degree and Astronomy and Astrophysics for her master’s degree at La Sapienza University, Rome. Her research is focused on the atmosphere of exoplanets, in particular gas giants, and on how their star affects the structure and properties. She is simulating the physical and chemical structure of atmospheres and what is called a transmission spectrum, which is what can be observed when the planet passes in front of its host star and filters its light. It can give information about molecules and compounds in the atmosphere as well as cloud coverage.
