The AusSRC is excited to introduce Dr Jordan Collier as our new Senior Project Scientist.
Jordan is passionate about astronomy and the many projects being undertaken with the SKA, and is excited by the unexpected discoveries that await those trawling through the data, be it human or machine!
The AusSRC is excited to introduce Dr Kathryn Barker as our new Business Manager.
Working in big data is nothing new for Kathryn, having joined us from the Curtin Institute for Data Science.
AusSRC joined in the fun at Astrofest, WA’s biggest annual astronomy event. We teamed up with SKAO to share our excitement about the SKA project with the local community. We spoke with people of all ages about the SRCNet, assisted by a large world map with flashing LED lights to simulate data racing around the network.
The joint venture agreement was officially signed off in September 2023, an important milestone in the history of the AusSRC.
Held at the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, a signing ceremony took place on 22 October 2023, with members of the SKAO Council, Partners of the AusSRC and the broader Australian & international astronomy community in attendance.
