The patterns of the Universe — a guide to the art and science of our place in the cosmos

Dr. Ulrike Kuchner (School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham )
Ulrike is an astronomer (PhD) and artist (MfA) based at the Uni of Nottingham. Her scientific research deals with the question of how mass is assembled in the Universe and how galaxies form and evolve over their lifetime. To do this, she bridges simulations of the cosmos with observations of world-class telescopes. As an artist and interdisciplinary researcher, she often joins, facilitates and studies interdisciplinary creative processes of art and science collaborations to integrate different approaches and knowledge systems. Her art deals with the themes of humanity and imperfections in data

How can Heritage Science allow us to go back in time?

Dr. Florence Liggins (Department of Physics and Maths, Nottingham Trent University )
Florence is currently a Research Fellow in Imaging and Sensing for Archaeology, Art history and Conservation (ISAAC) at Nottingham Trent University. She studied Physics with Astronomy at Cardiff University, followed by a PhD in Laboratory Astrophysics with the Space and Atmospheric Physics group at Imperial College London.
