Today our fabulous feature interview is with Debatri Chattopadhyay, an amazing OzGrav researcher and Doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne Australia. She is about to complete her Astrophysics PhD by publication and is working on Gravitational-wave astrophysics.
Debatri uses the OzSTAR supercomputer to model gravitational waves resulting from high-energy collisions between heavy mass binaries like pulsars and black holes. She is a keen proponent of Manipuri dance and has also been awarded a place in Homeward Bound, a global leadership program for women in STEM. She’s off to Antarctica next year.
