Website of Tobias Westmeier


to the website of Tobias Westmeier. I am a Senior Research Fellow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) which is a joint venture between Curtin University and the University of Western Australia. Being an expert in radio interferometry and spectral-line radio observations, my research interests include the study of neutral hydrogen gas in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies with the aim to understand its role in the structure and evolution of galaxies residing in different environments. I am a member of several large survey projects for the SKA precursor telescopes ASKAP and MeerKAT, including the WALLABY, DINGO and MHONGOOSE projects.

In addition to my scientific interests, I am also involved in the development of techniques for the automated detection and parametrisation of galaxies in radio astronomical surveys. I am the leader of the SoFiA project which aims to develop a source finding pipeline for radio astronomical data cubes.

Please visit my personal website for more information about my other interests outside astronomy.
