I am an astronomer working with simulations of gravitational lenses. The results of my work are applied to research of supermassive black...

How do scientific simulations look like? The answer sometimes can be quite visually appealing. I am working with gravitational lensing simulations – the result of many stars bending background light rays from distant bright galaxies and acting as lenses – which produce the magnification patterns shown here. These things are used to do cutting-edge research in astronomy (you can find much more information here), but can also look very pretty! I have created a small app to allow users to color these patterns as they feel. Anyone can upload their creation in Redbubble and order it as a high quality print. Each pattern is unique, resulting from solving a complex mathematical equation on supercomputers. Read the description of each work to find out more. Feel free to contact me if you want to learn more!
