The Telegraphic | The home website of Danny Price
Welcome to The Telegraphic: the online home of Danny Price. I'm an astrophysicist hailing from Perth, Western Australia. I just completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford, and am now working at Harvard on the Large Aperture Experiment to Detect the Dark Ages (LEDA). My research interests are: radio astronomy instrumentation, digital signal processing, aperture array design, and the epoch of reionisation. A list of my publications is available here.
I occasionally manage to get some time to play with websites. A lot have been lost in the sands of time, but here's a few that are alive and kicking.
There's a lot of information out there, and occasionally I feel the need to share something I've come across. You can find my musings, rants and words of advice in my weblog.
Whilst doing my undergraduate, I worked as a web designer, with a few good friends. Doing a DPhil has eaten up a lot of my webdev time, but I still occasionally get the opportunity to make a site or two. I'm a big fan of CakePHP, Wordpress, and Bottle for getting things done. You can have a look at my portfolio and my Github profile, for you to peruse at your pleasure.
I've just finished my DPhil in Astrophysics at the Univeristy of Oxford, working on radio astronomy instrumentation. In particular, I've designed a new digital spectrometer for the Parkes 64m telescope (aka "The Dish"), which is powered by FPGAs and GPGPUs. It's called HI-Pulsar, and it's pretty good if I do say so.
I'm currently working on a project called the Large Aperture Experiment to Detect the Dark Ages, a telescope that seeks to detect emission from neutral Hydrogen in the intergalactic medium about 100 million years after the Big Bang (redshifts 15-30). You can view my publications here.
