Bolton Fellow, Shi Dai
Shi Dai, who took up a post-doc position at CASS in December 2015, has just joined Tessa Vernstrom as a new Bolton Fellow. The image above shows Shi viewing the commemorative stone at Piha on the west coast near Auckland during a recent PULSE@Parkes tour to New Zealand. It commemorates the pioneering observations of the "Cosmic Noise" carried out by CSIR (as it then was) scientists John Bolton (after whom Shi's Fellowship is named) and Gordon Stanley (a New Zealander) in 1948 using a Yagi antenna atop the 300m high cliffs overlooking the Tasman Sea on the site of a WWII radar station. Details about these observations may be found in this document. (Image credit: Rob Hollow)
