WA Tall Poppies

Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker was named the 2017 WA Tall Poppy of the Year for her work in Radio Astronomy and her work with the Murchison Widefield Array, using it to construct a model of the entire low-frequency radio sky of the southern sky, the GaLactic and Extragalactic All-sky MWA survey (GLEAM).

Tall Poppies were first awarded in Western Australia in 2010. We hope that working with universities and the Science Teachers Association of Western Australia and our university and other partners that the program will increase inĀ strength.
