11.30am–12pm 20 March 2017
In 2016 I completed my PhD at the University of Sydney and left astronomy to take up a position as a Science Curator at the Powerhouse Museum. In this talk I will discuss a little...
11–11.30am 20 March 2017
The radio sky is an extremely dynamic place. Many transients including gamma-ray bursts, supernovae, X-ray binaries, tidal disruption events and flare stars produce bright radio...
3–4pm 11 March 2017
We will talk about the biggest fireworks shows in the Universe - what happpens when stars explode!  Most stars end their lives in these brilliant explosions.  We will...
74" Telescope at Mount Stromlo
10–11.30am 5 March 2017
Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical...
11am–12pm 2 March 2017
New spectroscopic surveys now allow to measure the detailed abundance and ages of stars throughout the Galactic disk. Having this information star‐by‐star, including ages, allows...
11am–12pm 1 March 2017
I will review efforts being made to detect and explore the neutral hydrogen signal from the first billion years of the universe. Neutral hydrogen acts as a tracer of the growth of...
11am–12pm 28 February 2017
We investigate how accurately the total mass of neutrinos is constrained from the magnitude dispersion of SNe Ia due to the effects of gravitational lensing. For this purpose, we...
11am–12pm 23 February 2017
Observations at gamma-ray and radio frequencies suggest that the parsec-scale environment of the launch sites of relativistic jets from AGN leaves imprints on the Doppler-beamed...
11am–12pm 16 February 2017
In this talk, I will describe ongoing work to study galaxy formation and evolution in a cosmological framework with numerical simulations. The simulations are performed using a...
11am–12pm 13 February 2017
Despite the critical role that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) play in the chemical enrichment of the Universe and their great importance in measuring cosmological distances, we still...
11am–12pm 9 February 2017
The Dark Energy Survey aims to make the most precise test yet of our cosmological model, dark energy, dark matter, and our laws of gravity. The four main probes we use are baryon...
11am–12pm 31 January 2017
Star formation is inherently a 'multiscale' process. In this talk, I will present an overview of my thesis research in molecular cloud and star formation. In particular, I will...
9am–5pm 13 January 2017
The RSSA Summer Research Students will give end of project presentations.
2–3pm 5 January 2017
Radio astronomy is currently exploring an intriguing new phase space that probes the dynamic Universe on timescales of milliseconds. Recent development of sensitive, high time...
11am–12pm 15 December 2016
Our view and understanding of globular clusters in the Milky Way have undergone massive changes over the past few decades. No longer are globular clusters seen as the perfect...
11am–12pm 8 December 2016
Understanding the physical processes that control star formation in the interstellar medium (ISM) is one of the key themes in the astrophysics of galaxies today. In the current...
