Biography

Morgan Fraser is a Royal Society - Science Foundation Ireland University Research Fellow, at the School of Physics in UCD. He obtained his PhD in 2011 from Queens University Belfast, and spent time there as a postdoctoral researcher, before moving to the University of Cambridge. His research aims to explain the ultimate fate of the most massive stars as core-collapse supernovae, and find new classes of extragalactic transients.
