About Me

Hi, my name is Sean Elvidge and I lead the Space Environment Group at the University of Birmingham

Day-to-day I am interested in creating/using novel mathematical techniques for better modelling of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, space weather events and statistical techniques for combining data. I was selected for the inaugural Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list in the Science & Healthcare category.

I’m passionate about communicating science with the general public and give talks to over 1,500 people a year. From primary school age students to subject experts. For more details please visit my  Outreach & Talks page.

This is my personal website, if you want more information about my research or the University of Birmingham’s Space Environment Group please visit our dedicated website:  uobserene.com.

Whilst there may be bits of Space Weather discussion on this site, you’re much more likely to find posts about the velocity required to complete a loop the loop, the number of unique song choices on Desert Island Discs or the most expensive Premier League transfer of all time.
