SkyMapper Fellow, ANU College of Science
I am currently a SkyMapper Fellow at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Mount Stromlo Observatory of the Australian National University. My reasearch activities there (hydrodynamical simulations of supernova explosions, observations of supernova remnants, nucleosynthesis calculations) are anchored in the working group of Prof. Brian Schmidt. I am also an associated investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).
