Biographical details

Prof. Cairns received his PhD from the University of Sydney (Australia) in 1987. He worked at the University of Iowa (1986-1998) before taking up a prestigious 5-year Senior Research Fellowship at the University of Sydney, one of only 20 awarded over all research fields. In 2004 he was awarded a similarly competitive Australian Professorial Fellowship and in 2009 was appointed Professor in Space Physics (Teaching & Research) at U. Sydney.

Prof. Cairns has over 240 refereed papers published or in press in books and journals, a Hirsch index of over 28, given over 3 plenary and 75 invited papers at international conferences, and obtained over US$7 M in competitive funding (excluding spacecraft projects) from Australian and US funding agencies. He has great experience leading international and national scientific societies (e.g., AOGS, the International Association for Geomagnetism and Aeronomy [IAGA], and the Australian Institute of Physics's Solar Terrestrial and Space Physics [STSP] Group).

He is Australia's national representative to both the ICSU Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) and IAGA. Nationally Prof. Cairns is the past Chair (2005-2011) of the Australian Academy of Science's National Committee for Space Science. As such he led the development of Australia's first Decadal Plan in space science, published by the Academy of Science in 2010. He also played a major role in the joint Academy's Strategic Plan for Earth Observation from Space, released in late 2009.

Prof. Cairns is a clear leader of Australia's space science community, writing submissions to multiple Government reviews and entities in the last several years which together with the Decadal and Strategic Plans have led to Australia's Government making space science a major priority and focus since May 2009. He has also led the development of a professional level annual Australian Space Science Conference from 2007.

Research interests

Prof. Cairns's primary interests are in the theory, simulation, and observation of plasma waves, radio emissions, shocks, and associated space weather produced in the solar atmosphere, inner solar wind, planetary magnetospheres, the distant heliosphere, and the local interstellar medium. His most important contributions are:

  1. Burstiness: he has demonstrated that the near-universal spatio-temporal burstiness of waves and radiation is usually a signature of the physics and plasma inhomogeneity, developed large parts of stochastic growth theory (SGT) and demonstrated its applicability in over 10 systems, investigated nonlinear self-focusing (modulational) instabilities, and co-discovered localized Langmuir eigenstates in space.
  2. Radio emissions: he has developed the first micro- to macro-scale theories for the solar system's most powerful radio emissions, type II and III solar radio bursts and 2-3 kHz radiation from the outer heliosphere.

These combine his analytic/numerical theories for the microphysics of electron beams, wave growth, linear mode conversion, and nonlinear processes and integrate them over multiple regions of a macroscopic extended source.

As well as these interests, Prof. Cairns is also taking major leadership roles in two University of Sydney spacecraft projects, i-INSPIRE and a subsequent cubesat as part of the European-lead QB50 project. He is also the current leader of the Solar, Heliospheric, and Ionospheric (SHI) Group of the Australia Ð US Ð India Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) of radiotelescopes, currently being built in Western Australia. He is also a member of the team for NASA's CAPER rocket and ESA's Solar Orbiter.
