Associate Professor Alan Duffy
Associate Professor Alan Duffy is an astrophysicist at Swinburne University and lead scientist of the Royal Institution of Australia. His research involves creating baby universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies like our Milky Way form and grow within vast halos of invisible dark matter. Alan then tries to find this dark matter as part of SABRE, the world’s first dark matter detector in the Southern Hemisphere at the bottom of a gold mine. When not exploring simulated universes, you can find him explaining science on ABC breakfast TV, Catalyst and Ten’s The Project.
