Professor Elizabeth Stanway

Professor Elizabeth Stanway (University of Warwick)

Prof. Stanway (hosted by Stuart Ryder) will be working with AAO staff on the stellar populations of star forming galaxies, especially those with low chemical enrichment and with high star formation density. She will apply population synthesis models that account for binary stars (BPASS) to a variety of projects at the AAO, including examining the surviving companions of supernova progenitor stars to understand the survival rates and distributions of such objects, as well as engaging with survey projects including GAMA, SAMI and Taipan.
