Are we alone in the universe?

Join the great space coaster, a journey into current explorations in radio astronomy, gravitational wave detection and sending messages to Proxima Centura B. Will these projects help answer the question ‘Are we alone in the Universe?’


Kevin’s main research interests are ExaScale computing for data intensive astronomy, developing methods for the automated classification of galaxies and gravitational waves using multi-wavelength data, machine learning algorithms and modelling complex systems.

Kevin considers himself one of the luckiest geeks on the planet. He is paid to do what he loves - astronomy and computing with some of the biggest baddest computers on the planet.
