The Astrophysics Group

Welcome to the Astrophysics Group. Here we briefly introduce the group members based either in Sydney (ATNF Headquarters, Marsfield) or in Perth (ARRC Building near Curtin), their main research area and contact details, and long-term visitors. Each CSIRO staff member can be reached by email - Firstname.Lastname at - and by phone.

Phone extensions: 

* CASS Sydney:   (02) 9372 xxxx (in Australia) and +61 2 9372 xxxx (from overseas).

* CASS Perth:      (08) 6436 xxxx (in Australia) and +61 8 6436 xxxx (from overseas).

Astrophysics Group meetings are held every first Tuesday of the month at 13:30h (Sydney time) / 10:30h (Perth time). Research morning teas are held every Wednesday morning (10-11am) at the CASS Headquarters in Marsfield. All Astrophysics Group members contribute to the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF) in various roles, eg. as Duty Astronomers and project scientist. Since September 2012 our group has a twitter feed. In Dec 2014 we started the ATNF Daily Astronomy Picture (ADAP), to which all ATNF staff and users are welcome to contribute. 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, Mopra, MWA, and ASKAP observations).
