Personal profile


Dr Stuart Ryder is an Adjunct Fellow with the Dept of Physics & Astronomy. Previously he led the International Telescopes Support Office at the Australian Astronomical Observatory. Stuart works part-time as a Program Manager with Astronomy Australia Ltd at their Macquarie University Office, and oversees Australia's Strategic Partnership with the European Southern Observatory.

Research interests

Stuart's research interests are primarily in astronomical transients, including core-collapse supernovae and Fast Radio Bursts. In the past decade he has co-led the SUNBIRD (Supernovae UNmasked By InfraRed Detection) collaboration, that has used Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics facilities on 8-10 metre class telescopes including Gemini, Keck, Subaru, and the Very Large Telescope to reveal a population of "missing" supernovae. He is also leading the optical follow-up using the Very Large Telescope of the host galaxies to Fast Radio Bursts localised with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder by the CRAFT collaboration.
