Venue: Virtual Meeting
My current research is focused on biosignatures - molecules which can act as indicators of life. The project requires a lot of quantum chemistry and molecular physics. For my talk I will be discussing all about biosignatures.
Speaker: Thomas Cross
"Currently I’m doing a PhD at Hull in astrophysics, where I am branching out into both astrochemistry and astrobiology.
With regards to my background, previously as part of my Masters I lived in Svalbard and researched the Aurora at the EISCAT radar system there. My undergraduate degree (integrated Masters) was done in Aberystwyth University. After completing my masters I also worked as a teacher in Hangzhou, China where I taught English as a foreign language and science."
