Eureka!

Having just tumbled off a plane back from a most excellent conference (more on that later), a very quick post.

Every year, the  Australian Museum awards the Eureka Prizes. These are a series of various prizes, for excellence in a range of disciplines, as well as rewarding early career and emerging leaders. This year, I'm pleased to say that newly-minted Dr Anthony Conn and I are finalists in the University of New South Wales Eureka Prize for Scientific Research. This is for our work on the rather mysterious plane of dwarf galaxies orbiting Andromeda.

It's a tough field, and we find ourselves up against two very strong medical finalists. We find out on the 4th September who the winner is at the gala dinner.

Anyway, you can read some more about it here and I'll let you know the results. Until then, here's one of our pictures for the entry.
