Assoc. Prof. Emma Ryan Webber will be the keynote speaker at the NACAA conference on Saturday 31st March.
We are providing the opportunity for the Public to come along to hear Emma, who originally comes from Ballarat, to speak on
‘What we know about Big Bang Cosmology and our Milky Way Galaxy from the naked eye’
Emma is a past junior Member of BAS and now leads the intergalactic medium research group at Swinburne. The Groups science focuses on detecting metals in absorption at very high redshifts. To achieve this the group use near-infrared spectroscopy towards high redshift quasars on the world’s largest telescopes including Keck and the VLT. Related to this, they also work on high redshift galaxies and their influence on reionization, including their escaping fraction of ionizing radiation. Emma’s PhD was on HI in the local Universe, and she still has active interest in that field.
