I'm new to my research team and need help!

    Today I was offered a position to analyze data concerning exoplanets. Apparently this isn't very hard, but I am new to physics and astronomy. I don't have many resources available, and concerned that if I express this to my advisor I'll look a little under qualified, I'm a quick study and was wondering what things I should look into before I start (especially which areas of math I should brush up on).

    not sure what kind of data and for what purpose, but here is a url to some people that spoke about exoplanets back in oct. 07
