Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Westmeier is an astrophysicist at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). He is an expert in radio interferometry and spectral-line radio observations. His research interests include the study of neutral hydrogen gas in the Milky Way and other galaxies with the aim to understand its role in the structure and evolution of galaxies residing in different environments. He is a member of several large survey projects for the SKA precursor telescopes ASKAP and MeerKAT, including the WALLABY, DINGO and MHONGOOSE projects.

In addition to his scientific interests, Dr. Westmeier is also involved in the development of techniques for the automated detection and parametrisation of galaxies in radio astronomical surveys. He is the leader of the SoFiA project which aims to develop a source finding pipeline for radio astronomical data cubes.
