I am searching for planets using gravitational microlensing. Andy Gould and I run the Microlensing Follow Up Network, a network of professional and amateur astronomers dedicated to followup observations of microlensing events. Our focus is on following high-magnification microlensing events, which are intrinsically very sensitive to planets.
