Adam Kewley - Gaia
Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge
Adam worked in industry at Unilever PLC as a data/automation scientist after working at Crown Informatics Ltd as a full-stack web developer. His academic background is in chemistry.
He completed his PhD in "The Synthesis and Separation Properties of Organic Cages" under Andrew Cooper FRS at the University of Liverpool. During the PhD, he worked on programming automated robotic platforms to synthesize porous organic cages. He also worked on developing novel gas-separation techniques.
Away from work, Adam's interests include learning new software techniques, UI design, 3D design, computer games, board games, and piano - although he's particularly terrible at the piano. Further details about Adam can be found at his personal website.
Adam is now a Gaia software developer at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge (UK). He works with Francesca De Angeli and Floor van Leeuwen on the preparation of Gaia's data-processing software stack.
