Change in CASS Director

After three successful years leading CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science, Dr Lewis Ball's term as Director of CASS will come to an end on 17 March.

As CASS Director, Lewis secured the funding necessary to ensure that ASKAP will deliver on its primary science goals and has overseen the first science results from CSIRO's innovative phased array feeds. He has also ensured the future of the Parkes Telescope as a world-leading pulsar instrument and key element of the new Breakthrough Listen SETI project.

CSIRO will now initiate a process to identify a successor to lead its Astronomy and Space Science program.

In the meantime, Dr Douglas Bock will take on the role as acting Director of CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science. Douglas has been with CSIRO since 2010 and currently leads Australia Telescope National Facility operations. Prior to coming to CSIRO, Douglas was at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was System Scientist for the Allen Telescope Array, then from 2004, Project Manager and Assistant Director-Operations for the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA).
