Natasha Hurley-Walker

Radio Astronomer, Curtin University

I am a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow at the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research. I received my PhD in Radio Astronomy from the University of Cambridge in 2010 and have led several large-area radio sky surveys with the Murchison Widefield Array, exploring a wide range of science topics including supernova remnants, galaxy clusters, radio galaxy life cycles, and transient astronomy. I have won several awards, being named a WA Tall Poppies Scientist of the Year (2017), ABC Top 5 Scientist (2018), and Superstar of STEM (2019-2021).
