I am a PhD student at Curtin node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). My research is focused on the study of the interstellar medium in the line of sight of millisecond pulsars. My special interest is in pulsar timing array (PTA) targets, a sky distribution of which can help detection of stochastic ultra-low frequency gravitational waves.
I work with Dr. Ramesh Bhat (ICRAR-Curtin), Dr. Ryan Shanon (Swinburne), and Dr. Shi Dai (CASS). The primary goal of my research is to use multi-telescope, multi-frequency radio observations of short-period millisecond pulsars in order to better understand the interstellar medium effects on the pulsar signals.
I led multiple different world-class radio telescope observing proposals and have been awarded full requested time allocations. I primarily use the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) which is an Australian Square Kilometer Array (SKA) pathfinder.
