Last week I attended NAM 2022 at the University of Warwick. I presented my poster, Black Hole Hunters: A citizen science search for black hole self-lensing. The Royal Astronomical Society also put out a press release about the project:
A research team from the Open University and the University of Southampton is asking for the public’s help to find some of the most mysterious, elusive objects in the Universe – black holes. By examining data from the SuperWASP survey, the UK’s leading extra-solar planet detection programme, the team hope to detect changes in starlight that may provide evidence for the existence of these black holes.
