I study neutral hydrogen (HI) gas in galaxies using single dish and interferometric radio telescopes. I study the feasibility of installing a next generation phased array feed receiver on the Parkes 64-m radio telescope and perform validation of the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope using Widefield ASKAP L-band Legacy All-sky Blind Survey early science observations of the NGC7162 galaxy group. I also investigate the impact of the environment on HI asymmetries using archival data. I identify seven asymmetry parameters to be robust for use in future studies with larger surveys.
