DPS student involved in 12 exoplanets hunt using statistical tools

Surendra Bhattarai (19MS136) and his team worked on exoplanets detection using Statistical tools like TRICERATOPS, VESPA, and other methods (lightcurve, and radial velocity) since last year, and the paper got published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS): "VaTEST I: Validation of Sub-Saturn Exoplanet TOI-181b in Narrow Orbit from its Host Star". Many many congratulations.

MNRAS DOI: arxiv: After their first successful attempt, they expanded the study and validated 11 more new exoplanets. And this can be also be found on our 2nd paper: "VaTEST II: Statistical Validation of 11 TESS-Detected Exoplanets Orbiting K-type Stars" , which is published a few days ago in the Astronomical Journal (AJ).

And this work got highlighted in Times Of India press release:
