Travelling to space

Robin de Meyere (PhD student)
Robin graduated with a Masters of Engineering in Aerospace Materials at Imperial College London where he worked with Reaction Engines on the leading edges of the Skylon spacecraft. Robin is now heavily involved in the aerospace industry and is currently completing a PhD in Materials for Aero-Propulsion at St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford. Robin is a strong advocate for interdisciplinarity, having previously worked in Fashion, Digital Marketing and Architecture.

Earth mark two...

Robert Graham (DPhil student)
"I model the climate and evolution of terrestrial planets, including both Earth and planets orbiting other stars. Specifically, I want to understand the conditions that might be necessary for planets to support life. My current research focuses on simulating the carbon cycle on water-poor "land planets" (like Arrakis from Frank Herbert's "Dune") to understand whether they could plausibly maintain a stable climate over time. This would make land planets much more attractive targets in the search for aliens!"
