“Today we are speaking with Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker, who is a GaLactic and Extragalactic MWA Survey Scientist who earned her PhD in Radio Astronomy at the University of Cambridge and is currently a Curtin Early Career Research Fellow who helped to commission the low-frequency SKA precursor radio telescope, the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), located in outback Western Australia. Today we will hear about some of her amazing research projects, including her all-sky survey of 300,000 galaxies and her Gleamoscope App. Last year she was named the WA Tall Poppy Scientist of the year, and right now we congratulate her for just being recognised as one of the 5 brightest science communicators in Australia for 2018.
