Liz van der Kamp
‘My name is Liz van der Kamp, and I am doing a Master’s in Astronomy and Cosmology. This Master’s is followed by the double bachelor in Astronomy and Physics, that I finished last year. For my bachelor research project I investigated transits of companion around a primary star that are asymmetric in shape. I created a model of a tilted and inclined disk around that companion to fit the shape of the asymmetric light curve.'
I hope that people will be intrigued by the similarities I found
'During my research, I published a paper in Astronomy & Astrophysics. In this paper the results of the best-fit model as well as a comparison to two other tilted and inclined disk systems are shown. Also suggestions on further investigation of this and other asymmetric transit systems are described.
Intrigued by the similaraties
I hope that people will read my research and findings and will be intrigued by the similarities I found. Moreover, I hope that people will continue to investigate these systems. Perhaps they will find out more about the physics that creates such systems.’
