Tom Marsh
Andrew Levan

Andrew Levan is a professor at Radboud University Nijmegen and an honorary professor at the University of Warwick. He is broadly interested in the
many ways that stars explosively end their lives.

Peter Clark

Peter is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Portsmouth. His research interests include exotic transients, interacting supernovae and tidal disruption events. He is particularly interested in the discovery and follow-up of rapidly evolving transients.

Klaas Wiersema

Klaas is a postdoctoral research fellow at Warwick. He works on transients that are
associated with non-thermal emission, such as gamma-ray bursts and gravitational wave
sources. He uses polarimetry as a tool to understand transient populations better, and
enjoys looking through the GOTO data for new transients.

Paul A. Strøm

Paul is also involved in the PLATO mission where he works for the PLATO science management office. Scientifically he works on a variety of astrophysical topics mainly focused on far-UV observations aimed at understanding exocomets.

Felipe Jimenez-ibarra

Felipe is a Research Fellow at Monash University. His research focus is accreting compact binaries, and he is also interested in web development and data reduction pipelines.

Amit Kumar

Amit is a postdoc with the GOTO team at the University of Warwick. His primary research interest lies in time-domain astronomy, e.g., Supernovae, Gamma-ray bursts, and Gravitational-wave candidates. He is also contributing to calibrating GOTO’s optical detectors and data reduction pipeline.

Paul Chote

Paul helps develop and maintain GOTO’s La Palma facilities and software infrastructure. He is interested in time domain astrophysics and space domain awareness in addition to robotic telescopes and instrumentation.

Mark Kennedy

Cordinator Variable stars

(University College Cork)

Mark is a Government of Ireland postdoctoral fellow at University College Cork, Ireland. His interests are in studying stellar remnants in the Milky Way, and through the “Invisible Monsters” project, he will be searching for the missing galactic black hole population in the next generation of all sky surveys.
