I was fascinated to come across an astrophysicists recently in relation to our local Karratha arts festival-of all things! He works on the mysterious dark matter that envelopes the universe. Prof Andrew Melatos work on gravitational waves using the LIGO system in the USA is fascinating. Check out their work here: https://www.gw-openscience.org/about/. He uses huge data analysis mixed with careful ‘listening’ to the system feedback to determine what they can ‘see’ from the sounds’.
His recent collaboration with an artist goes to show creativity is mark of STEM not an exception to it!
