What is your role in the DESI project ?
In the past, I’ve largely taken highly polished versions of data and attempted to draw definite conclusions about our Universe, in particular whether we understand gravity as well as we think we do.
Glengormley, Northern Ireland. Slightly different from my current abode of Berkeley, CA!
I’ve never been this close to a telescope before so everything is new. The people are great and my primary motivation is what we will learn about the birth of the Universe. It’s fantastic that we can say anything at all. I confess that I also spend a lot of time thinking about what we might do better next time around.
Likely something soccer related.
Get involved early and ask around. There’s often a snowball effect and you won’t know where you will end up.
Surfing, sailing, cycling and soccer. Not necessarily in that order. I’m also a budding wood working enthusiast.
