Hi Matthew, can you tell us a bit about our background and how you came to work for Nalytics?

I’m originally from Glasgow, but I spent the last 4 years living in Edinburgh where I studied Business with Marketing at the University of Edinburgh. As much as I loved it there, after graduating this past summer I decided to move home for a bit while I decide what my next steps are going to be, and I knew that I wanted to get some practical marketing experience during that time.

Hi I’m David Starkey, I’m a 24 year old PhD candidate at the University of St Andrews and I’m studying Physics.

I’m part of a study that searches for active galaxies. These are also known as quasars (although the term can denote a variety of objects). An active galaxy is a galaxy that shines very brightly – due to the presence of a black hole that is consuming enormous amounts of mass. The material being consumed by the black hole sort of bunches up and forms a spinning disk of matter called an accretion disk.
