Tiago Campante qualified with a BSc in Physics/Applied Mathematics from the University of Porto (Portugal) in 2007 and went on to study for a PhD co-hosted by the University of Porto and Aarhus University (Denmark). Tiago was awarded a PhD in Astronomy by the University of Porto in 2012. Shortly after concluding his PhD, he joined the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham (United Kingdom) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. In 2017, following a short spell as Research Scientist at the University of GŲttingen (Germany), Tiago joined the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Porto as an Assistant Professor (non-tenured; 2017 - 2018) and the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences as a Researcher (2017 - present).
Tiago's research experience and scholarship in the fields of stellar astrophysics and exoplanetary science are extensive. He is an expert on analyzing asteroseismic data and over the past few years has developed a considerable interest in the use of asteroseismology not only to characterize exoplanet systems, but also to elucidate the dynamics and evolution of those systems. Tiago was awarded, in 2018, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to study giant planets transiting oscillating evolved stars.
Tiago has been an active contributor to the asteroseismic program of the NASA Kepler/K2 mission since its launch in 2009, having also contributed to the analysis of asteroseismic targets observed by the CoRoT space mission as well as during ground-based, radial-velocity campaigns. At present, he plays key roles in the science preparation and/or coordination work for the NASA TESS (2018), ESA PLATO (2026), and ESA ARIEL (2028) space missions.
Tiago is coauthor of over 100 publications (including Nature and Science). He is also an enthusiastic communicator on the themes of stellar astrophysics and exoplanets, giving frequent talks to various groups at the national level. Furthermore, he frequently contributes to both the national and international media on stories related to his field of research.
