  • Dr Edward Gomez

    I am education director for Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGT). The global education hub for LCOGT is based in Cardiff University where I am an honourary lecturer/adjunct faculty in the School of Physics and Astronomy. One of the enjoyably parts of this position is supervising BSc. and MPhys. level undergraduate projects. This year I had 4 project students investigating extrasolar planets. I am very proud that 2 of my former project students have gone on to do PhDs. In addition, I am part of the Schools Engagement Team here and assist with the outreach of the University. We have recently been awarded funding by the Welsh Government's National Science Academy to run the programme Universe in the Classroom, inspiring children and teachers with Universe in a Box kits and stellar role models, across Wales. Universe in the Classrom is run in partnership with the international project Universe Awareness. I co-chair the IAU task force for children and schools, under the guidance of the Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD). Our aim is to help people in astronomically developing countries to engage with and inspire children and teachers.

  • Dr Dan Read

    I'm a Senior Lecturer in Experimental Physics and the Director of Postgraduate Studies in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University. My expertise are in the fields of nanoscale science and technology (in particular nanoscale magnetism).

    As well as trying to further our understanding of fundamental physics relating to magnetism I am also looking to improve or replace current data storage technologies such as hard disk drives. I'm also very interested in using magnetic sensors for a variety of applications. I have more than 15 years experience in magnetism and magnetic materials.
