Antonio Herrera Martin, PhD.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Statistical Sciences, David A. Dunlap Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto. My supervisor is Gwen Eadie.

I am originally from Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. More info in Spanish. I initially studied Engineering, but I decided to do a Masters in Physics at the University of Guanajuato. I later obtained a Phd in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Glasgow.

After finishing my Phd, I did a postdoc at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand under the supervision of Michael Albrow.

I also like to dabble in game programming just for fun. Look some examples



My research has been related from several areas of cosmology from early universe to Gravitational lensing.

During my Phd, I modeled gravitational lensing of Dark Matter and Gravitational waves.

During my stay at the University of Canterbury I searched for extrasolar planets through the study of microlensing events using the KMTnet collaboration telescopes.
We found interestingly an extrasolar planet with several similitudes with Earth. More info.
I like to call it Patsy the planet. Visit here.

Currently I am part of the astrostatistics group at the university of Toronto, and also recently part of CHIME(Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment), which I will be involve studying FRBs(Fast Radio Bursts).
