2020-1-SCI-013 P1 RSS (Finding young stars and their planets)
2018-2-MLT-005 P1 RSS (Probing the winds from massive binary star supernova progenitors)
2020-1-MLT-002 P1 HRS (HRS study of long-period eclipsing binaries)
2018-2-LSP-001 P1 RSS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2020-1-SCI-006 P2 RSS (Stellar populations in dusty, green-valley galaxies.)
