Ripples from the dark side of the universe

Professor James Hough is a British physicist and an international leader in the search for gravitational waves. A graduate of Glasgow University, he became Professor of Experimental Physics and is the Emeritus holder of the Kelvin Chair of Natural Philosophy.

His work has been awarded many prestigious prizes and currently he is a member of the Scottish Science Advisory Council, the Council of the Institute of Physics in the UK and of the European Science Foundation. These positions enable him to help steer science and education policy in Scotland, the UK and Europe.

We are most fortunate to welcome a world leader in his field and Jim promises to explain the complexity and excitement of outer space to a non-scientific audience!
