Dr. Glen Mackie

I received a Ph.D. (The Stellar Content of Central Dominant Galaxies) from the Australian National University in 1990, and subsequently worked at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Carter Observatory (Wellington, NZ) and Victoria University of Wellington. My research interests include Brightest Cluster Galaxies as tracers of large-scale structure and as probes of galaxy formation and evolution in the rich cluster environment, multiwavelength properties of galaxies, galaxy mergers, internet telescopes, astronomy education and astronomy history. I am the Coordinator of Swinburne Astronomy Online, editor and contributor to Cosmos, the SAO online encyclopedia of astronomy. In 2011 I published the textbook "Multiwavelength Atlas of Galaxies" with Cambridge University Press (CUP). I'm currently writing a new undergraduate textbook on cosmology for CUP.
