Steven Tingay comes to Curtin from Swinburne Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing where he was the Project Leader for Swinburne’s Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project funded under the Federal government’s Major National Research Facilities (MNRF) Program (http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/ska/).
This project develops baseband recording and processing equipment for radio astronomy (RFI studies, VLBI and eVLBI, pulsar timing and surveys and other experiments) and uses this equipment on Australian radio telescope such as Parkes and the Australia Telescope Compact Array to undertake novel astrophysical experiments.
Tingay’s main areas of research interest include quasars and active galactic nuclei, starburst galaxies, galactic X-ray binaries, and radio galaxies, primarily at radio wavelengths but also at optical, IR, X-ray, and gamma-ray wavelengths.
