Radio Astronomer, Curtin University


I have a Masters in Physics with Astrophysics and did my PhD research by helping build and commission a new radio telescope in Cambridge, UK, with which I performed the first science with the instrument. Due to the imminent construction of the Square Kilometer Array, I made a move to the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research in Western Australia, to work on a prototype instrument, the Murchison Widefield Array. I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in Perth for five years, accumulating an in-depth knowledge of radio astronomy, the southern radio sky, and supercomputing.
