   Rebecca Jane Mayes

    Research interests: using cosmological simulations to study galaxy
    disruption in large galaxy clusters, with the goal of predicting the number of
    supermassive black holes that are located within ultra-compact dwarf galaxies.

   Gary Segal

    Research interests: information-theoretic perspectives on the second law of
    thermodynamics.The application of machine learning in big data radio
    astronomy, in particular, measures of 'interestingness' and unsupervised learning
                                 approaches for detecting the unexpected.
