A post discussing the Einstein equation, the systems for which it can be solved exactly as well as the techniques used to find approximate solutions to more complicated spacetimes.
A post exploring the possible consequences of Primordial Black Holes, ancient types of Black Holes born not out of the collapse of stars, but out of the Big Bang itself.
A post briefly exploring machine learning, focusing on some of the different methods used and understanding how they can be the stepping stones to artificial intelligence.
A post explaining the research area of my new PhD – gravitational wave emission from binary sources, their detection and the key insights they provide into the nature of gravity.
A post explaining the fuzzball, believed by string theorists to be the true quantum description of a black hole. The theory seeks to resolve the famous information paradox and eliminate the existence of troublesome singularities at the centre of black holes.
The Future Circular Collider aims to enhance our understanding of the universe with particle collisions at an energy far greater than the Large Hadron Collider’s.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the Black Hole Stability Conjecture. Asking whether, when black holes are disturbed they return to their stable state after spewing out gravitational waves.
A post qualitatively explaining the main ideas behind the AdS/CFT correspondence. The breakthroughs in theoretical physics due to the theory are outlined along with the consequences for how we view our universe.
A short opinion post touching on the idea of the sense of self, a loss of identity and the reasons behind choice.
Today we bring together black holes and exoplanets to fantasise over the ultimate solar system with a dark twist.
