UTMOST welcomes Tim Bateman, Stefan Osłowski and Kathryn Plant

We welcome Tim BatemanStefan Osłowski and Kathryn Plant to UTMOST.

Timothy Bateman has started his new role at the Molonglo Observatory! Tim brings a wealth of experience to the project in digital electronics, especially involving Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Tim comes to us from CSIRO.

Stefan is starting a 5 year postdoc position with the project, and will be working on FRBs and pulsars amongst many other things. He obtained his PhD from Swinburne University in 2013, and has subsequently worked in Germany, initially at the Max Planck Insitute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn and then as a Humboldt Fellow at Bielefeld University. We are very pleased to welcome him back to Swinburne.

Kathryn  is a PhD student at Berkeley’s radio physics lab, and will be working on major directions in our upgrade path using SNAP board technology over the next 12 months. Welcome Kathryn!
