New Year Honours for Phil Diamond
SKAO Director-General Phil Diamond was awarded a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) medal in the UK New Year Honours List in recognition of his services to global radio astronomy. Phil was appointed Director-General of the SKA Organisation, the precursor to the current Observatory, in November 2012, shortly after the organisation’s creation. In the last 11 years, Phil has overseen the global engineering activities to design the two SKA telescopes, the policy work to create the intergovernmental organisation that is now leading the project, and the start of construction of the telescopes. Prior to his SKA role, Phil was Director of CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science, having previously served as Director of the University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, Director of e-MERLIN, and Deputy Assistant Director for NRAO's Very Large Array and Very Long Baseline Array. As he has also worked in Germany and Sweden, recognition of his services to global radio astronomy is clearly well merited! (Image credit: SKAO/Paul Worpole)
