Summary

Gareth Few is a computational astrophysicist with a background researching the formation and evolution of spiral galaxies and galactic chemical evolution using simulations.

After postdoctoral positions at the University of Exeter and the University of Hull he has devoted himself to excellence in physics education, teaching at Durham University and then returning to Hull as a lecturer.

He is active in science outreach, presenting science talks to schools, science clubs and the public as well as previously chairing the Beverley Café Scientifique and Hull branch of the British Science Association.
