About

Emeritus Professor Roger Clay
University of Adelaide

Abstract: At the University of Adelaide, we study cosmic rays, neutrinos, and high energy gamma-rays. It is likely that these different particles are all produced in the most energetic processes in galaxies. Some galaxies contain particularly extreme objects which house strange, and energetic, environments. These will be explained with an emphasis on starburst galaxies, and various active galactic nuclei.

Bio: Roger Clay was born in South Yorkshire in England and went to university in London, at Imperial College. He received his Honours degree there in 1967 and went on to do a PhD in the Cosmic Ray Group, supervised by Harold Allan, a physicist of great intellect. His PhD on radio emission from cosmic ray showers was completed in 1971 and included two years working on the Haverah Park airshower array, based at the University of Leeds. Roger has worked at the University of Adelaide since 1971 and has carried out research in astrophysics for over 45 years. Such work has taken the High Energy Astrophysics group at the University of Adelaide into a number of major international scientific arenas. His research interests include cosmic rays and cosmic ray detection, cosmic ray sources, the knee, anisotropy, building detectors, Cerenkov stuff, archaeoastronomy and understanding how smart ancient people were, VLBI, cosmic ray acceleration - and its sites, cloud detection, scattering, tachyons, understanding how students perform when examined.
