The Astrophysics Group

Welcome to the Astrophysics Group. Here we briefly introduce the group members, their main research area and their contact details. Each CSIRO staff member can be reached by email - Firstname.Lastname at csiro.au - and by phone. For staff based at the ATNF Headquarters in Marsfield use (02) 9372 xxxx (in Australia) and +61 2 9372 xxxx (from overseas); the 4-digit internal extension is listed below.

Since September 2012 our group has a twitter feed. Regular updates are provided by Simon Johnston, Assistant Director of CASS and Leader of the Astrophysics Group. Our goal is to communicate the group's latest astrophysics results, publications and important events to fellow astronomers and the media. - All astrophysics and related publications are on ADS, (e.g., papers based on ATCA, Parkes, or Mopra observations).

Astrophysics Group Secretary: Amanda Gray (4642)
