About the Event


Dr. Matthew Malek cut his professional teeth at the Kamioka Observatory in Japan.  Whilst there, he earned his doctorate as a member of the Super-Kamiokande collaboration by searching for relic neutrinos from ancient supernovae in the early Universe. After completing his degree, Matthew joined the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina to help unlock the mysteries of ultra-high energy cosmic rays. In 2006, he migrated to Oxford to join the hunt for dark matter. Now a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield, Matthew has returned to neutrino research, hoping that these 'ghostly' particles can explain why there is matter in the Universe. When not busy in the laboratory, Matthew can be found engaged in science outreach projects, ringing church bells, or training for his next triathlon.
