'How do star-forming galaxies cluster' ~ Dr Wang, a Research Fellow at the University of Sussex, will describe to us the contribution being made to understanding the Universe by the Herschel Space Telescope. Launched last year by ESA it is now providing results of immense importance. The Sussex team led by Professor Seb Oliver, are making a major contribution to this work and managing the SPIRE instrumentation on board Herschel.

Dr Wang obtained her bachelor's degree in physics at Zhejiang University, China. She then moved to Imperial College London for her PhD. Upon completion of her PhD in January 2009, she took up a postdoctoral position at the University of Sussex. Her research interests include the large-scale distribution of galaxies and how galaxies form and evolve.

All welcome
