Papers are assessed by an Editorial Board with expertise across the range of astronomy, with advice from referees selected world-wide.
- Bryan Gaensler, University of Sydney
Bryan Gaensler is an Australian Laureate Fellow at the University of Sydney, and is Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics. His research focuses on the origin of magnetism in interstellar space, the demographics of neutron stars and black holes in our Milky Way, and the identification of transient sources of radio emission. He was the 1999 Young Australian of the Year, gave the 2001 Australia Day Address to the nation, was a 2005 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, and is a winner of the Pierce Prize (2006) and the Pawsey Medal (2011). He previously held positions at MIT, the Smithsonian Institution and Harvard University, before moving to The University of Sydney in 2006 as an ARC Federation Fellow.
- Michael Burton, University of New South Wales
Michael is a Professor in the School of Physics at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. He has previously held appointments at the Anglo Australian Observatory, the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies, NASA Ames Research Center, the University of California and the Joint Astronomy Centre, Hawaii. His research revolves around the study of how stars form and the excitation of the interstellar medium in which this occurs, applying the techniques of infrared and millimetre-wave astronomy. He has also been a pioneer in the development of astronomy in Antarctica.
- Benedetta Ciardi, Max-Planck-Institut fuer Astrophysik
Benedetta Ciardi is a staff member of the Cosmology Group of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics. Her research interests are mainly focused on theoretical studies of early structure formation and evolution of the intergalactic medium, in particular on modelling the reionisation process. She is also the project manager for the acquisition, positioning and operations of a LOFAR antenna field.
- Duncan Forbes, Swinburne´s Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing
Duncan Forbes is a Professor at Swinburne´s Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, after holding positions at Birmingham University and UC Santa Cruz. His research interests include globular clusters, galaxy formation and evolution, and galaxies in low density environments.
- Jeremy Mould, University of Melbourne
Jeremy Mould is a Professor in the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University. He is also a Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne. His previous appointments include Director of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory, Director of the ANU´s Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics, and Professor of Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology´s Palomar Observatory. He has been strongly connected with the Hubble Space Telescope program.
- Daniel Price, Monash University
Daniel Price is a Monash Fellow in Astrophysics at Monash University. His research interests are broadly in computational astrophysics, focussed in particular on understanding the role of magnetic fields in the star formation process.
- Stuart Ryder, Australian Gemini Scientist at the AAO
Stuart Ryder is the Australian Gemini Scientist at the AAO, managing the Australian Gemini Office. His research interests encompass optical, infrared, and radio studies of star formation, supernovae, and the dynamics and evolution of spiral galaxies. He is also an avid chaser of total solar eclipses.
