Biographical details

Dr Ilana Feain obtained her PhD in Astrophysics from The University of Sydney in 2006. From 2006 until 2014, Ilana was a Research and Project Scientist at CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science Division, where she focused on radio interferometric imaging of super massive black holes in order to understand galaxy formation and evolution in the distant Universe. In 2007, Ilana was awarded the Inaugural L'Oreal For Women in Science Fellowship for research and outreach work related to Astrophysics. In March 2014, Ilana changed career direction, and commenced a three year research fellowship with Paul Keall in the School of Medicine Radiation Physics Laboratory.
