Ian Morrison

Department: 

Research Interests: 

My principal area of research is the investigation of signalling methods for interstellar data communications, and the formulation and evaluation of algorithms for detecting these signal types.  The aim of this research is to introduce new techniques that can widen the scope of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to include wideband information-bearing signal types that are not on current SETI search agendas.

I am also interested in modelling the Galactic Habitable Zone to establish which regions of the Galaxy should be given highest priority for SETI searches.
