Rebecca Lange

Rebecca completed her BSc (hons) in astronomy and physics at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) in the UK and received her PhD in astronomy from the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research at the University of Western Australia. Her PhD research focused on the mass-size relation of galaxies and their components.

Before Rebecca moved to Australia, she worked as a Research Assistant in the Imaging & Sensing for Archaeology, Art History & Conservation group at NTU. Her duties included the development and testing of instruments and software for imaging and spectroscopy, as well as the organisation and supervision of field trips.

Rebecca joined the Curtin Institute for Computation (CIC) in 2016 as a Data Scientist. Since then, she has worked on projects with the multimodal analysis group, the Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute and the Sustainable Built Environment national research centre (SBEbrc). She also has been involved in the CIC’s bid for the Astronomy Data And Computing Services (ADACS) initiative, which the CIC has been jointly delivering with Swinburne University of Technology since 2017. ADACS provides astronomy-focused computational training, support and expertise.


Her key competences and research interests include:

  • Data analytics and visualisation
  • Software development
  • Computational training (certified Carpentries Instructor)
