Welcome to my homepage! I'm Dr. Jonti Horner, an astronomer who currently works in the Department of Astrophysics and Optics, in the University of New South Wales. I arrived here in October 2010 to work in the exoplanet group, spending part of my time looking for planets around other stars! In addition, I carry out theoretical research into the origin and evolution of the small bodies in our Solar system - objects such as comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. I'm also involved in projects examining the formation of planets around other stars, and looking into the nature of habitability on the Earth and beyond. For more details on my work, check out my Research page!
Once I finished at Oxford, I moved to Bern to work in the TAPS group (Theoretical Astrophysics and Planetary Science). I stayed in Bern for three years, taking the opportunity to enjoy weekeneds on the ski-slopes, and then moved to The Open University in late 2006, where I worked closely with Barrie Jones on exo-planets and small bodies in our Solar system, work which continues despite my move to the other side of the planet! Finally, I returned to Durham for a year, working as a teaching fellow at the University of Durham (see the Teaching page for more details of that) before accepting my current post at UNSW.
