Prof Jayanne English
Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manitoba

Jayanne English is an Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manitoba, as well as a visiting professor at the University of Oxford.  Also a trained artist, Jayanne specialises in creating breathtaking images of space and the cosmos which manage to combine both artistic flair, and also convey the necessary scientific information to properly understand the image.  The images are often created from multiple sources of astronomical data such as optical and radio telescopes, and employ techniques from the art world such as colour theory and composition.  This rare combination of scientific and artistic knowledge and expertise allows Jayanne to craft visually striking images which are of huge value to scientific understanding of the universe around us, but which are also popular with editors and readers in the general media.
