Seminar Details

Sabine Bellstedt, astronomer and alumni of the School of Physics, Wollongong University.

Dr Sabine Bellstedt is an astronomer at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research. Her love for physics arose from a desire to understand the world around her – from the quirks of the natural world (like why bubbles are coloured like rainbows), to the scientific basis of the technological world around her (like the photoelectric effect that makes solar panels work). For Sabine, the most awe-inspiring aspect of physics is astrophysics. As an astronomer, she now uses some of the biggest telescopes in the world to work in the field of galaxy evolution. Sabine holds a PhD in Astrophysics from Swinburne University of Technology (2019), and a Bachelor of Science - Physics (Honours) from the University of Wollongong (2014). In addition to astronomy, Sabine is passionate about the environment, and trying to reduce her environmental footprint.
