Exoplanet Astrobiology

Are exoplanets habitable and do they have life?

We are interested in applying insights from the biology of terrestrial extreme environments to considering the habitability of exoplanet environments.  Although we do not know precisely the environments on exoplanets, there are many intellectual links between what we do and the study of distant exoplanets.

We achieve this goal by collaborating with partners around the world, for example through our affiliate status with the NASA Astrobiology Instutite.

We collaborate with the University of Edinburgh Centre for Exoplanet Science and the St Andrew's University Centre for Exoplanet Science.
