Elizabeth Stanway

Elizabeth Stanway’s research focuses on the host galaxies on transients and on the theoretical modelling of binary systems which support interpretation of extragalactic events, as well as galaxy evolution more general. She is currently one of the GOTO Ombudspersons.

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.

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.

Krzysztof Ulaczyk

Krzysztof is an Assistant Professor at University of Warwick. He’s responsible for GOTO operations, hardware maintenance and data processing. He’s also involved in OGLE project and has background in sky surveys and variable stars.

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.

Joe Lyman

Software Developer

Joe Lyman is a software developer for the GOTO project, working on the real-time pipeline and marshall. His science interests are astrophysical transients, such as supernovae, gamma-ray bursts and kilonovae, and the galaxies they inhabit.

Kendall Ackley

Kendall is a postdoc with the GOTO team at University of Warwick. She is a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. Her research interests are in coordination of EM follow-up of gravitational wave sources, astrophysical transients such as gamma-ray bursts and kilonovae, and machine learning techniques with applications to large-scale data sets.

James McCormac

Project Manager

James is a project manager on the GOTO project.
