I am the Outreach Leader in Astronomy at the University of Southampton. I started the post in June 2011 and completed my PhD in radio astronomy (also at the University of Southampton) in November 2011.
The main part of my job involves managing a team of Physics and Astronomy undergrad and PhD students to present mobile planetarium shows on campus and at local schools. We tailor these shows to all ages and to the curriculum and try to engage the students and public with the exciting world class astronomy research that we do.
I am personally writing up a paper on my PhD research which was on the subject of the radio and X-ray emission from the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy NGC 4051.
