Personal profile

Biography

I am a full-time researcher at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) within the Faculty of Science at UWA. I did my Masters undergraduate studies in Physics & Astrophysics at the University of Bristol (UK) between 2001-2005, followed by a PhD in Astrophysics between 2005-2008. After my PhD I took up a post-doctoral research position at the University of St Andrews (UK) between 2008-2010, followed by a SUPA fellowship from 2010-2012.

I first came to ICRAR as a long-term visitor in 2010-2012. From 2013 I have been directly employed by UWA through a UWA Research Fellowship. From 2015 onwards I have become an ongoing Senior Research Fellow at ICRAR.

Research

My main research is observational extra-galactic astronomy. I am involved in a number of major surveys (including GAMA, SAMI, H-ATLAS and WAVES). I also work on simulations, with a particular interest in the physics of galaxy mergers.
