The SKA, or Square Kilometre Array will be a revolutionary new radio telescope with 50 times the sensitivity and 10,000 times the survey speed of the best current-day telescopes. It will be used by scientists to address fundamental unanswered questions about the Universe. Building the SKA is a huge project involving teams in 20 countries; it is being coordinated by the SKA Organisation, which has its headquarters at Jodrell Bank Observatory near Manchester in the UK.
Mathieu Isidro is the deputy communications and outreach manager at the SKA Organisation and is also responsible for the social media activity. He uses channels such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to help raise general awareness of the project and to engage with stakeholders and other interested parties. Mathieu is also responsible for coordinating the input into the SKA social channels from all the participating organisations around the world.
