Mia Walker is the Project Officer for the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescope. She grew up in Geraldton, Western Australia, and still identifies as a country bumpkin. Armed with some good grades and a slapdash aspiration to work in the space industry, she moved to the big smoke (Perth) and completed a double degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering and Physics at Curtin University. She now works on a precursor instrument to the global SKA project, dabbles in art, and watches reruns of Red Dwarf. You can find her featured in a lot of promotional videos for the MWA and the SKA, and she is happy to be contacted via email to attempt to answer questions on the topic of radio astronomy (and although she offers no guarantees on the scientific accuracy or comedic value of her answers, she can refer you to persons both funnier and smarter if need be).
