Event description
An evening of space science talks from Amy Parker of the CSIRO and Benjamin Hartig from Curtin University

About this Event

The Australian Youth Aerospace Association and the Institution of Engineering and Technology would like to invite you to an evening of talks by two of Perth's most eminent space and planetary science researchers.

Amy Parker is an Earth Observation specialist working for the CSIRO, where she manages Australian use of the NovaSAR-1 satellite. She is also a research associate at Curtin University, where her research in using the capacities of NovaSAR-1 in measuring displacements of the Earth's surface is applied to monitoring water reservoirs and natural hazards.

Benjamin Hartig is an engineer, researcher and project manager at Curtin's Space Science and Technology Centre. He has previously worked on projects such as the Desert Fireball Network, an autonomous camera network across Australia for meteor observation, tracking and retrieval.

There will be a networking session after the event, with refreshments provided.

A message from the IET: "The IET inspires, informs and influences the global engineering community to engineer a better world. As a diverse home across engineering and technology, we share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter. It’s why we are uniquely placed to champion engineering. We have three chapters in WA; On Campus, Young Professional, and Senior to service each part of the engineering cohort."
