Prof. Ray Norris

Prof. Norris is a world-leading radio astronomer and the principal investigator of the EMU project, which is the large SKA pathfinding continuum survey with the Australia SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP).

He also has a strong interest in aboriginal astronomy and has undertaken research in both Australian aboriginal astronomy and ancient sites in Europe.

This compliments some of the work into indigenous and cultural astronomy in Africa as was displayed at the recent ‘Shared Skies’ exhibition at the South African National Gallery (Iziko Museums) in Cape Town.
