Matthew Bailes

Astronomy; Pulsars; Big Bang Cosmology
Accredited Supervisor
Professor Matthew Bailes is an Australian research Council Laureate Fellow and the Director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGRav). He is a world leader in the discovery and timing of millisecond p...

Chris Blake

Accredited Supervisor
Professor Chris Blake is an observational cosmologist with research interests in large-scale structure, dark energy and gravity, and galaxy evolution. His research examines questions concerning how the universe was made, what it is formed of, and the physi...

Jeff Cooke

Galaxy Formation; Supernovae; Large Scale Structure; Real-time Big Data processing; Intergalactic Medium
Accredited Supervisor
I am currently leading research in the areas of high redshift galaxies (in emission and absorption), high redshift supernovae, and fast transients. The fast transient work includes the search for electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves as part ...

Dr. Davis (Ph.D., University of Arkansas, 2015) joined our Centre in August 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow, having previously taught as a visiting assistant professor of physics at both the University of Arkansas (2015) and Arkansas Tech University (2015-20...

Adam Deller

Accredited Supervisor
Dr Adam Deller is an astrophysicist whose research is concerned with the physics of compact objects (neutron stars and black holes).Dr Deller studies this area primarily through observations with radio telescopes. He investigate fast radio bursts, radio pu...

Alan Duffy

Galaxy Formation; Cosmology; Square Kilometre Array; Advanced Statistics and Big Data; Dark Matter; Telescopes; Reionisation; Supercomputer
Accredited Supervisor
I create model universes on supercomputers to uncover the nature of dark matter (a new type of particle that binds galaxies together) and the key physical laws that govern the formation of galaxies. I focus on two extremes of distance, the very close and t...
