We were delighted to welcome Professor Malcolm MacCallum of the Queen Mary’s University of London to speak at the first Science Café lecture of the term on the subject of black holes.

Professor MacCallum worked at Queen Mary’s from 1976-to 2009 taking on roles such as Professor of Applied Mathematics, Head of the Department of Computer Science and Vice-Principal for Science and Engineering. He was also Director of the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research as well as being Secretary and President of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. Professor MacCallum has now retired but continues to research his particular fields of interest.

Professor MacCallum’s huge range of research interests include but are not limited to, classical non-Newtonian gravity theory, computer algebra applied to different to equations, gravity theory, gravitational waves and of course black holes.

Huge thanks to Professor MacCallum for visiting us and kicking off this term’s Science Café lectures with such a fascinating and insightful talk.
