Biography

Dr Matt Owers (B.Sc. (Advanced Physics, hons. class I) University of Wollongong 2003, Ph.D University of New South Wales 2008)  is a Future Fellow and Senior Lecturer at Macquarie. Previously, he was a Super Science Fellow at the Australian Astronomical Observatory (2011-2014), and a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, Swinburne University of Technology (2008-2011).

He teaches ASTR178 (Other Worlds: Planets and Planetary Systems), and currently supervises 3 PhD students.

Research interests

Broadly, Dr Owers' research interests are in the field of galaxy evolution, and how the large-scale environment impacts the properties of galaxies. He is involved in several large Australian surveys, including the Galaxy And Mass Assembly survey (http://www.gama-survey.org), the SAMI Galaxy Survey (https://sami-survey.org), as well as planned surveys such as WAVES (https://wavesurvey.org) and Hector (https://www.aao.gov.au/technology/new-instruments/hector).
