I completed my PhD in Physics at Curtin University in 2018. I am now a Postdoctoral Researcher at CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science. For an updated profile, please see www.linkedin.com/in/chenoa-tremblay-b6371210

Thesis Title:

Searching for Molecules at Low Frequency with the Murchison Widefield Array


I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Chemistry, with minors in Mathematics and Sociology, from Plymouth State University located in the United States. Since then, I have spent the last 20 years working as an analytical chemist in corporate research and development in the fields of pharmaceutical science, environmental catalysts, automotive catalysts, printable inks and, most recently, the mining industry. I have always had a keen interest in astrochemistry and in 2006 I started working towards a degree in Physics and Astronomy by attending graduate and undergraduate courses in physics at the University of New Mexico. In 2011 I moved with my husband and daughter to Western Australia and am now a PhD student at Curtin University.
