Dr. Tana Joseph
Light is not the only thing that carries information about the Universe and its contents. Particles, like neutrinos and cosmic rays, can also be used to study stars and galaxies in more detail, and two years ago, gravitational waves were detected for the first time. These waves allow us to learn about objects that would be invisible to other astronomical methods, for example merging black holes. Even debris from our own Solar System, like meteorites, can give us insight into how stars and planets form. Combining the information obtained from detection of light, particles, space rocks and gravitational waves in order to learn more about how the Universe works is called multi-messenger astronomy.
Tana Joseph is a Royal Society Newton International Fellow in the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester. Her area of research is black holes and neutron stars outside our Galaxy. She completed her PhD at the University of Southampton in 2013. In addition to her research, Tana is very passionate about science communication with the public.
