Angus Wright

Angus is a Research Fellow in the German Centre for Cosmological Lensing at the Ruhr Universität Bochum, Germany. His undertook his PhD at the University of Western Australia, where he studied the growth and evolution of baryonic mass as a member of the Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) collaboration. Following his PhD, Angus worked for the Kilo Degree Survey (KiDS) at the Argelander Institute for Astronomy at the Universität Bonn, where he began his work within weak gravitational lensing. For the last 3 years his research has focused on weak lensing survey science, and particularly on optimisation of photometric image reduction and analysis methods, systematics mitigation, and statistical analyses. Beyond weak lensing, Angus is a keen astrostatistician, a passable astronomy outreach presenter, and an enthusiastic but nonetheless mediocre golfer.
