School of Physics
The School of Physics at the University of Sydney is the leading Physics department in the country, with outstanding staff and students undertaking world-leading teaching and research.
Our 100 staff and 150 postgraduate students conduct research across a vast range of interests from nanoparticles to clusters of galaxies and from theoretical modelling to laboratory experiments. With access to supercomputers, modern laboratory facilities and observatories, locally, nationally and internationally, the School of Physics is the premier environment for physics education and research.
CUDOS researchers from the School of Physics have made a major advancement towards the design of inexpensive monitoring devices that can detect human disease and air pollution at very small levels.
In recognition of Professor Messel's significant contributions to physics, teaching and the pursuit of excellence, the University of Sydney invites you to join us for this special memorial tribute.
Associate Professor Michael J. Biercuk has won the Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher, presented at a gala dinner on 26 August in the Sydney Town Hall.
