Who is Dr. Alfredo Carpineti?

am an astrophysicist who works in public engagement, science communication and education, as well as continuing my scientific research. I work as a science journalist for I Fucking Love Science. I live in London with my fiancé Chris. He’s the one behind the cool original artworks and animations in my talks and videos

Throughout my career, I have presented my work at five International Astronomical conferences and three topical workshops across the World. I have given public lectures in Astronomy at the Royal Observatory, Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, Science Show-Off & at the 72nd World Sci-Fi Convention at the ExCel centre. My work as an educator was featured in the Evening Standard and in the Observer.

In 2016, I was fortunate enough to give a lecture at the Cheltenham Science Festival and it can be viewed here.

I write this blog because I’ve been passionate about astronomy since I was 9 and I want to pass on my passion to as many people as possible. To misquote Oscar Wilde: “We are all in the gutter, but all of us should be looking at the stars”
