Prof. Agol has studied extrasolar planets via a variety of techniques including transits, phase-functions, coronagraphy, radial velocity, transit-timing variations, and secondary-eclipses. He is interested in characterizing the sizes, densities, masses, and orbital properties of small exoplanets in or near the habitable zone.
