Personal profile

Biography

I am a researcher and lecturer in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. I specialise in using radio telescopes to investigate the interstellar medium, with a focus on magnetism and star-formation in the Milky Way.

I am particularly interested in using statistics and machine learning to unlock discoveries in 'big data' from new telescopes and surveys (e.g., ASKAPPOSSUMGLIMPSE). These techniques are broadly applicable and I also work on cross-disciplinary problems in ecology and remote sensing.
