Richard Manchester

CSIRO Fellow, CSIRO Space and Astronomy, CSIRO

My research interests include the precision timing of pulsars and its applications, the origin and evolution of pulsars, pulsar beaming, polarization and the pulse emission mechanism, the effects of circumstellar and interstellar propagation (especially Faraday rotation and the Galactic magnetic field) and the structure and evolution of supernova remnants, especially SNR 1987A.

I am a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.
