Naomi McClure-Griffiths


Welcome to my homepage. I am a Senior Research Scientist and the Head of National Facility Science at the CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science’s Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF). I lead a small research group studying the structure and evolution of the Milky Way and polarization techniques. My personal research focuses on the interstellar gas and magnetic fields in the Galaxy. My large projects include the Galactic All Sky Survey and the Southern Galactic Plane Survey and the upcoming GASKAP survey with the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP).

For some history: I was born in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I grew up in Portland, Oregon where I attended Lincoln High School. I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio and a PhD in astrophysics from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I joined CSIRO in 2001 as a Bolton Postdoctoral Fellow and then a CSIRO Senior Postdoc, before becoming an OCE Science Leader in 2006.
