ICRAR’s research students will be the future astronomers, engineers and data scientists working around the globe in a variety of fields.
We have a strong commitment to providing the best research training and an environment in which our talented students will thrive.
Student - PhD
I am a Curtin Astrophysics PhD student working with A/Prof Cathryn Trott and Dr Jack Line. My PhD project will see me working with advanced statistical techniques such as the bispectrum and kernel density estimators, in order to separate out out foreground galaxies from the cosmological hydrogen signal.
I also enjoy long walks on the beach, and have an affinity for precariously attaching myself to boulders.
Student - PhD
Hi, I am a PhD student at CIRA/CSIRO studying star-formation properties in nearby star-forming galaxies. I am currently a part of the WALLABY team working on the resolved radio continuum and infrared-radio correlation properties of the Eridanus supergroup to see whether we can observe the effects of the group environment.
My future work will involve comparing star forming galaxies which exhibit low frequency turnovers (primarily due to free-free absorption) to those that don’t and seeing how their star-formation properties differ.
Student - Masters
Currently conducting research with the Astrophotonics group at ICRAR-UWA under the supervision of Dr Shane Walsh, Dr David Gozzard and Dr Sascha Schediwy on the electronics and software development of the Western Australian Optical Ground Station (WAOGS).
