Prize Winners

Judged by Principal Scientist Chris Riseley.

Best talk: Kat Ross. Kat's work on spectral variability really showcases one of the key strengths of the MWA, namely the massive fractional bandwidth over such a large FoV, and the continued evolution of this project over the course of her PhD has been really great to witness. The synergy of MWA, ATCA and LBA follow-up is allowing her to finally answer such a long-standing question about the nature of these peaked-spectrum sources, and it's great to see this work presented in such a clear and engaging manner by a speaker who is very clearly enthused about the work and has a deep level of understanding.

Honourable mention: Nick Swainston and Mike Kriele both deserve mentions for their talks. Both the pulsar_spectra module that Nick presented and the all-sky diffuse mapping using EDA + LOFAR-LBA presented by Mike are really neat things in and of themselves, as well as providing a valuable resource to the community -- particularly given the ramping up of SMART, and the recent advancements made by the EoR group. Nichole's talk really emphasised the need for as good a model of the Galaxy as we can get, and Mike's talk bodes well in that regard.
