Professor Aris Karastergiou

Senior Research Fellow in Astrophysics

Aris specialises in astrophysical problems related to pulsars, as well as observational and computational techniques to achieve pulsar science goals with next generation telescopes.

Please have a look at the project website for the Square Kilometre Array, a large international collaboration to build a huge radio telescope across southern Africa and Western Australia.

Aris also spends a lot of his time working on pulsars and fast transient sources using LOFAR, the most sensitive radio telescope at low frequencies.

He is the principal investigator of ARTEMIS, a project aimed at real-time discovery of pulsars and fast radio bursts.

Watch a video of a short ‘Teddy Talk’ – ‘Extreme Clocks: Physics with Pulsars’ – given by Aris at the St Edmund Hall Research Expo.
