How can TG discover planets around other stars from his backyard? Surely you need enormous telescopes and computers out of the reach of amateur astronomers? Not so! TG bought his first telescope in 2001 and discovered his first supernova in 2007. He has since helped discover over 80 exoplanets. He is the recipient of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific’s 2018 Amateur Achievement Award and the Astronomical Society of Australia’s Berenice and Arthur Page Medal in 2020. He is an Adjunct Senior Lecturer with the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy.

Presented at Space on September 1st, 2021.
