Nuclear Physics group member wins 2009 Lord Kelvin Award

Dr Alex Murphy

The British Science Festival is Europe's largest celebration of science, technology and engineering (Guildford, 5-10 September 2009). Each year there are five special Award Lectures giving a rare opportunity to honour professional scientists or engineers in the early stages of their career, who show outstanding skills in communication to a non-specialist audience. This year, the Lord Kelvin Award Lecture for the Physical Sciences and Mathematics will be 'Exploring the Dark Side of the Universe', presented by Dr Alex Murphy of the School's Nuclear Physics group. This fully interactive event will visit a laboratory deep underground in which the search for the missing dark matter of the Universe is being conducted."
