Miti is a PhD student working with Paul O’Brien at University of Leicester. Her research is primarily on observational properties of gamma-ray bursts. She is also involved with overseeing the GOTO telescope.

Rob Eyles-Ferris

Rob is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leicester. His work focuses on a variety of astrophysical transients including gamma-ray bursts and tidal disruption events. He is also a member of the Swift satellite’s UK team.

Rhaana Starling

Rhaana is an Associate Professor at the University of Leicester, researching astrophysical transients. She combines observations from space and from the ground to understand the physics behind gamma-ray bursts, tidal disruption events and unidentified transients, as well as studying supermassive black holes in active galaxies.

Paul O’Brien

Paul has research interests in explosive transients, tidal disruption events and multi-messenger sources. In addition to GOTO, Paul is an investigator on several space missions designed to find transients and survey the sky at high energies.
