Tues 7 May 2019Emily Brunsden

Fantastic planets, and how to find them with Dr Emily Brunsden, University of York.

Imagine living in a world with three Suns, red jungles or endless night. These ideas have moved from fiction to reality as we discover more and more fantastic planets in our galaxy. This talk explains how we find such amazing worlds, how we know what they might be like and what we are still searching for out there.

Dr Brunsden is a Lecturer in the Department of Physics specialising especially in Astrophysics. She is the Director of Astrocampus - a teaching and outreach observatory at the University of York. Her research interests include the spectroscopy of pulsating stars and higher education in physics and astrophysics.
