Catherine Cress

Extraordinary Associate Professor

After obtaining a PhD in radio cosmology from Columbia University and a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophyiscs, I returned to South Africa to help grow Astronomy. I started Astro groups at UKZN and then at UWC but mostly now work at the Centre for High Performance Computing in Cape Town. I’m involved in various extragalactic MeerKAT surveys and in planning for the SKA. I’m particularly interested in making Astronomy relevant to Africa.
