Professor Queloz is one of the pioneers in the search for exoplanets. In 1995, he discovered the first giant planet outside the solar system together with Michel Mayor, leading to a series of new techniques and breakthroughs in exoplanet hunting. He also played an active role in the Corot mission, which led to the first transit detection of a rocky planet (Corot-7b). Professor Queloz is now a physics professor at Cavendish Laboratory and Geneva University; he leads a comprehensive research programme on the formation, structure and habitability of exoplanets in our universe.
