039 - BEYOND STANDARD - Prof. Alan Duffy

June 1, 2022

BEYOND STANDARD

It's not often you will find scientists ghost-hunting at the bottom of a gold mine, but it would be a mistake to assume Prof. Alan Duffy is going to conform to the standard model anytime soon. 

Equal parts astrophysicist, science communicator and entrepreneur, Prof. Alan Duffy has spent much of his career searching for Dark Matter, the mysterious, invisible substance that might just be holding our universe together. He is currently is the Director of the Space Technology and Industry Institute at Swinburne, a Node Leader in $35M ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics, and also the cofounder and CEO of mDetect, a spin-off company helping us peer inside some of the largest structures here on Earth. 

And if Alan looks familiar that's probably because he is also one of Australia's most prolific and successful science-communicators, regularly appearing on TV, radio and print media to explain the inexplicable. 

Plug in for a truely extraordinary episode.
