December 2012 Meeting Print

Dr.RedmanThe next meeting of the NIAAS will be held on Monday 3rd December 2012 in Ballyclare High School Lecture Theatre, starting at 8pm. Our speaker for the night will be Dr. Matt Redman from the Centre For Astronomy, National University of Ireland, Galway. His talk is titled 'Star Destruction' 

This is the first time Dr.Redman has been with us and i'm sure there will be a good turnout at this meeting, the last of the year!
About Matt:
I'm from Manchester, UK originally. I did a degree in Physics at Durham University 1991-1994 followed by a PhD in Manchester University 1994-1997. My thesis was a theoretical investigation into the lifetimes and shapes of ultracompact HII regions. I worked then at University of Leeds and Jodrell Bank Observatory 1997-2000 carrying out optical observations and modeling of planetary nebulae and supernova remnants. Then at University College London between 2000-2003 I carried out millimetre observations and modeling of cold dark star forming molecular clouds. I moved to Ireland in 2003 to the Dublin Insitute for Advanced Studies and since 2004 have been lecturing at National University of Ireland Galway. My current research spans both star formation and star destruction processes using observations and numerical models. 

Refreshments are available after the meeting (mince pies?)!
