Free Physics Lecture - TICKETS BOOKED OUT

Katie Up Copy

The University of Wollongong, along with the Australian Institute of Physics is presenting a FREE Public Lecture, proudly hosted by the Science Centre and Planetarium.

Come along and listen to theoretical astrophysicist Professor Katie Mack, from the University of Melbourne.

Katie specialises in cosmology and observable tracers of cosmological evolution. Her work focuses on finding new ways to understand the early universe and fundamental physics using astronomical observations.

Her current research focus is on dark matter, the mysterious invisible stuff making up most of the matter in the Universe. In her cutting-edge research, she shows how dark matter interactions in the early universe might have shaped the first stars and galaxies and altered the course of cosmic evolution.

Alongside her astrophysics research, Katie is deeply passionate about science communication, especially through social media, where she maintains one of the most-followed Twitter accounts by any professional astronomer world-wide. You can find her at @astrokatie

She is extremely active in other areas of science communication and appears regularly on television, radio, and in various print media, including a regular column in Cosmos Magazine. You can find out more about Katie from her website:
