Sudarsan S, a final year student of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri Campus, co-authored a paper titled, "Detection of a Westward Hotspot Offset in the Atmosphere of Hot Gas Giant CoRoT-2b", which was published in the Nature Astronomy journal, on January 22, 2018.

Nature Astronomy, a multidisciplinary journal, publishes research, reviews and commentary of the highest quality in all areas of astronomy, astrophysics and planetary sciences. It fosters closer interaction between all of the key astronomy-relevant disciplines by publishing the most significant research, review and commentary at the cutting edge of astronomy, astrophysics and planetary science. 

"I was part of a team to code up a data reduction pipeline to reduce images from the Spitzer Space Telescope into ultra-high precision time-resolved photometry suitable for characterising the properties of transiting extrasolar planets. This was a part of Nicolas B. Cowan's Coders for Habitability project, Google Summer of Code 2016. I worked with Lisa Dang (author of the paper) and Nicolas Cowan of McGill Space Institute," shared Sudarsan.
