She is passionate about the accessible, equitable and sustainable development of space exploration and space data and has worked with students to prototype the first University of Portsmouth Can-Sat.

The subject of the February Webinar will look at  ‘Technology enabling discovery:  Our last 13.7 billion years’

Our understanding of our Universe has transformed in the last 100 years, what key technologies have enabled this transformation and how might that continue with the next 100 years?

Becky will discuss this rapid transformation in our understanding, highlighting key discoveries and the instrumentation and algorithms which enabled them.
