Prof  Alan Duffy

Swinburne University

“Darkness Visible Down Under”

Decades of research have led astronomers to a staggering conclusion, that there exists a new, invisible type of mass that outweighs everything we can see five times over. Professor Duffy will explain how we know SO much about the properties of a particle we have yet to discover, and how Australia is playing a leading role in uncovering the nature of this mysterious dark matter with SABRE, the world’s first dark matter detector at Victoria’s Stawell gold mine.

Astronomer Professor Duffy simulates model universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies like our Milky Way form within vast clouds of dark matter. He is trying to find this dark matter as the Swinburne Node Leader in the new national ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics and a Chief Investigator of SABRE, the world’s first dark matter detector in the Southern Hemisphere, to be deployed at the Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory. When not simulating universes he tries to explain the science of this one to the general public in regular segments on ABC and Ten’s The Project as the Lead Scientist of the Royal Institution of Australia. Most recently has been appointed the inaugural Director of the Space Technology and Industry Institute at Swinburne, finding ways to use space to help companies and communities here on Earth.
