Research interests

Member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO), within the Sydney Institute for Astronomy (SIfA). Research Interests / Responsibilities within CAASTRO:

  • High dynamic range imaging;
  • Polarised foreground source;
  • The compact radio source population of starburst galaxies and emission mechanisms in radio galaxy jet-interaction hot spots;
  • Currently working polarisation foreground removal within the MWA (Murchison Widefield Array) Epoch of Reionisation pipeline;
  • Will also oversee the calibration and commissioning of MWA polarisation capabilities.
