Dr Jamie Farnes

Post-Doctoral Research Associate


Jamie received his PhD from the University of Cambridge (Trinity Hall and the Cavendish Laboratory) in 2012 in the areas of observational astrophysics and radio astronomy. He has since held positions at the University of Sydney, in Australia, and as an Excellence Fellow at Radboud University, in the Netherlands. His research has mostly focussed on charting the evolution of magnetic fields in galaxies throughout the Cosmos, with a particular focus on driving forward the skills needed for next-generation Big Data radio telescopes such as the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). His current interests include development of algorithms for radio astronomy, particularly for the Science Data Processor (SDP) of the SKA.
