About me

I'm Dr Ashley Nova, Cosmic Babe and part-time Super Villain. Just kidding on that last part.


Usually you can find my staring into space, and by space I mean the inky black void of my terminal. I work full-time as a post-doc researcher in Machine Learning and Galaxy Evolution.


When I'm not training the next generation of hyper-intelligent computer minds, I can be found playing video games for an audience, or posing in my underpants. I also guest on podcasts and RPG actual plays.


I'm a queer rights activist and a trustee of PrideInSTEM. I speak about LGBT+ diversity and inclusion in STEM at conferences and workshops.
