Danail Obreschkow has a passion for many fields in modern astrophysics and cosmology. His core areas of research include galaxy evolution, star formation, as well as cosmic large-scale structure. His research style mixes computational, analytical and observational methods, having supervised research students using all these methods. Over the last decade, Danail developed new models of for the evolution of cold gas in galaxies, highly relevant to modern observations and future surveys on the Square Kilometre Array telescope. More recently, Danail and his collaborators made fundamental discoveries on the connection between galactic angular momentum and the internal physics of galaxies; and his team also demonstrated the use of new statistical tools to extract information about the cosmos from the large-scale distribution of galaxies in space.

At part-time level, Danail also engages in research on quantum information and experimentation in microgravity with the European Space Agency. He has been a mission specialist and team coordinator on eight ESA parabolic flight missions between 2005 and 2018, with an integrated time in weightlessness of several hours.

A Swiss citizen, Danail joined UWA/ICRAR in late 2011 after graduating from his PhD in astrophysics at the University of Oxford in 2009 and a management employment in the automotive industry. His research has been honoured with several awards, including the Young Tall Poppy Award of the year, and his outreach activities have led to international recognition, for instance via his movie “Cosmic Eye” viewed nearly 200 Million times online.
