Brief Summary

I am a Senior Research Fellow, and ARC DECRA Fellow, at the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy. I lead the Epoch of Reionisation project within ICRAR, and am heavily involved in the design and data processing for the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and future Square Kilometre Array (SKA) EoR projects. More broadly, I apply signal processing techniques to the design and analysis of radio astronomy instrumentation and data.
