Hello curious minds and welcome to my channel!

My name is Dr. Becky Smethurst and I am an astrophysicist. I love making videos about science with an unnatural level of enthusiasm.

I also present videos for Sixty Symbols (physics) and Deep Sky Videos (astronomy) but I’ve also made a handy playlist for each if you want to check those out on here too.

My day job is to do research into how supermassive black holes can affect the galaxies that they live in. In particular I look at whether the output energy from the central black hole can stop a galaxy from forming stars.
