Alice Eleanor Matthews

Physicist, Environmentalist, Science Communicator

My name is Alice Eleanor Matthews.

Since graduating from the University of Manchester in July 2019 with a master of physics, I have been working as a contractor at an educational tech company called Fire Tech. We deliver online and in person tech camps teaching awesome courses such as artificial intelligence, python and much more. Since leaving Fire Tech, I have been working on a collaborative radio-cosmology research project with Dr Laura Wolz, from The University of Manchester. Using the DRAGONS simulation, a Dark-ages reionization and galaxy formation simulation, we plan to explore HI intensity mapping parameters.

At the moment, I am actively looking for new opportunities. I have a strong interest in data science and programming. I would love to use my physics knowledge to land a role in data analytics and machine learning, using my understanding on statistical physics, as well as having a breadth of experience working with big data sets and other data analysis methods. I also have strong interests in astronomy, high energy particle physics and cosmology. In addition to astrophysics related topics, I am also passionate about the environment and climate change. I am interested in both theoretical, simulation and data analytical work, and having an interest in technology and equipment, I have an aptitude and joy working in observations and in the lab. I have an passion working with telesopes and instrumentation. Please see my CV for additional information on my interests and previous research experiences.

In addition to this website, I have a personal blog where I discuss important topics, talk about my experiences and offer advice to others, to help young people and women, to also pursue careers and to widen the support and interest in the scientific community. I am a strong advoate for the environment and hope to make an impact for climate change as well as other women in science, offering advice on living a more green-eco friendly, and kind lifestyle.
