Geoff Sims @ UNSW

I am a PhD student at the University of NSW in Sydney, Australia. I am currently involved with astronomical site testing on the high Antarctic plateau (at sites such as Dome A and Ridge A), investigating characteristics such as sky brightness, airglow and aurora, and atmospheric water vapour. I am also interested in wide-field astrophotography and total solar eclipses.
