About James

James Beattie is a PhD student at the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics.

He is passionate about learning how stars form. James uncovers these mysteries by creating rich galactic and intergalactic simulations with supercomputers (for fun).

He is also a seasoned educator with a long career of teaching maths and science to kids.

When he's not uncovering the mysteries of the cosmos, he loves to play with his new puppy Kolomogorov (moggy for short), and do backflips -- though not at the same time.
