Professor of Gravitational Astrophysics & Cosmology and Head of the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Glasgow, Professor Martin Hendry’s main interests are cosmology and gravitational waves. 

Martin will consider whether our universe is unique, or whether we belong to a "multiverse" - a vast ensemble of universes, each with its own laws of nature - and the implications recent cosmological discoveries might have for the existence of life in the universe.
