We are excited to announce Prof Alan Duffy, Director of the Space Technology and Industry Institute at Swinburne University in Melbourne, will be presenting at Next water 2023.

A professional astrophysicist, Alan creates model universes within supercomputers to study the growth of galaxies, from the Big Bang to the present day. As well as learning how galaxies form, these simulations let him uncover the nature of the invisible Universe; made up of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Alan then uses his passion for science communications to explain these discoveries to general audiences. He is a regular on TV and radio, such as The Project TV, ABC, Triple J and more.

Join us for this two-day event to be held in Sydney on February 22nd and 23rd, to discover more from Alan about the world of astronomy and his passion for science. The line-up features other fascinating speakers, including globally renowned researcher Fiona Kerr and water expert John Thwaites, as well as thought provoking presentations, and will allow delegates to discuss focussed questions on our overarching theme Water Wisdom to Future Flow. View the preliminary program to see what else is in store.
