Greg Brown

Dr Greg Brown is the author of Stars and The Universe in the Illuminates series. There are approximately ten-billion-trillion stars in the entire observable universe. But what exactly are stars? Greg is an astronomer working at Royal Observatory Greenwich. He obtained his PhD at the University of Warwick, studying the untimely deaths of stars torn apart by supermassive black holes in distant galaxies. Upon finishing his doctorate, he began working as an outreach coordinator, building on his passion for science communication before joining the Observatory in 2017. Now he works in the Public Astronomy Team, developing and presenting the public programme from workshops and planetarium shows through to the popular evening observing sessions.
