Biography

Kirsten works both within the Space and Astronomy team as well as the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) Site Entity to communicate the wonderful work CSIRO is undertaking to discover more of our hidden Universe.

With a background in astronomy and over a decade's experience in science communication and outreach, Kirsten has worked extensively within academic environments and is experienced translating research into effective outreach and communication products for public engagement.
