I have a severe travel bug and am always thinking about the next trip overseas – anywhere I can find camping, hiking and good food is somewhere I would like to go. My partner and I spent 18 months traveling through 24 countries on an overland trip from the UK to Australia. Buses, trains and boats only. I have recently been working as part of the group investigating DUNE’s ability to detect supernovae in the Milky Way and beyond. I like that you really have to get creative when designing algorithms to find these events. Not to mention that humans have only ever detected neutrinos from one supernova, so everyone is excited about what we might learn from seeing another.
