Personal profile


Dr. Bi-Qing For joined the University of Western Australia as a SIEF John Stocker Postdoctoral Fellow in 2011. She received her B.S. degree in Astronomy and Physics in 2005 from the University of Arizona, Tucson, USA, and both PhD and M.A. degrees in Astronomy in 2011 and 2008, respectively, from the University of Texas, Austin, USA.

Research interests

Her current research focuses on galaxy formation and evolution using HI data from Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP). She studies specific astronomical objects such as high velocity clouds and dwarf galaxies. Technically, she is keen in using machine/deep learning algorithm for galaxy classification in the big data era. Past reseach also includes multi-wavelength studies of the Magellanic Clouds, probing the stellar evolution via chemical abundances of variable and non-variable horizontal branch stars, and probing the origin of subdwarf B stars.
