Graduate profile: Aaron Robotham
I'm now Assistant Professor in Astronomy at the University of Western Australia, working on the Galaxy and Mass Assembly project.
I spent seven enjoyable years in Bristol, and without doubt those years had the greatest influence on my character, direction and interests. During my PhD I travelled extensively, and I made many professional links that would serve my future career in astronomy.
In St Andrews I was a junior post-doctoral researcher, and two years later I progressed to a SUPA advanced fellowship. During my time in St Andrews I made multiple trips to Australia as part of the GAMA project (an ongoing astronomical survey of our local Universe). These trips led to my next career move - in 2013 I started a UWA fellowship and I am now an Assistant Professor.
Bristol is a highly regarded place for anyone to work or study, and I believe my experiences there have provided me with long-lasting career foundations.
