Warping light with Black Holes

Kevin Cunningham (He/him) (PhD researcher, University College Dublin)
I will give a brief introduction to what black holes are, how we think they form. I will then talk about the why black holes look so strange in images from NASA, the EHT and films like Interstellar.

Repairing children’s skull injuries with 3D resorbable magnesium implants

Mert Celikin (He/him) (Assistant Professor / Lecturer, University College Dublin)
Face, skull and jaw defects in children are severely debilitating, where the patient not only suffers physically but also psychologically. Currently, non-resorbable implants are being used to address these defects where a second operation is routinely required to remove the devices. The realisation of customised Biodegradable Magnesium Implants take us one step closer to overcoming the limitations of current technology. The potential use of desktop 3D-printers is investigated for cost-efficient processing of Mg-based implants which will reduce the safety risks associated with other 3D-printing technologies.

The Hunt For Gravitational Waves: a tale of black holes and lasers

Gabriel Andres Piovano (He/him) (Postdoctoral researcher, University College Dublin)
I will tell the (hi)story of the long quest for detecting gravitational waves. But what is a gravitational wave? Where do they come from? How black holes and lasers are involved? Join me to know more!
