Recently, Tara completed her Bachelor of Physics at Curtin University, during which she worked with the CIC Director, Prof Melanie Johnston-Hollitt, on multiple radio astronomy research projects, including searching active galaxy nuclei in disk-hosting galaxies and exploring the steep-spectral index radio-sky with low-frequency radio telescopes. Currently, she is undertaking an honour’s year in which she is studying data science.
Tara joined the CIC as a research intern in February 2022, continuing to assist Prof Johnston-Hollitt in completing her past research projects and finalising her undergraduate projects.
Her key competencies include:
- Radio Astronomy
- Astrophysical Source Analysis
- Dataset and Catalogue Utilisation
