Roles, responsibilities and expertise
Currently, I am a Research Associate at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Reseach (ICRAR) at UWA, and a Reseach Affiliate at the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO). I work on continuum science with the SKA Pathfinders, which involves significant contributions to MWA Sky Survey compilation. Before I was strongly involved in the LOFAR project; I am core team member of the LOLAR long baseline group and a CoI of the LOFAR deep sky surveys. Since 2014 I am Project Manager for ASKAP EMU project (Evolutionary Map of the Universe, radio continuum all-sky survey at 0.7-1.8 GHz). Additional responsibilities: former UWA-ICRAR seminar co-organiser (until mid 2015).
