The Telegraphic | The home website of Danny Price, Oxford
Welcome to The Telegraphic: the online home of Danny Price. I'm an astrophysicist hailing from Perth, Western Australia. I'm doing my DPhil at the University of Oxford, where I'm researching aperture arrays for the Square Kilometre Array. My research interests are: radio astronomy instrumentation, digital signal processing, microwave engineering, aperture array design, and the epoch of reionisation. A list of my publications is available here. In my spare time I make music and websites. I'm also fond of linguistics, languages and Ju Jitsu.
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. I'm increasingly spending more and 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 Square Kilomete Array, a huge telescope that will be built spanning Southern Africa and Western Australia. The SKA is one of the biggest science projects of the 21st century, so it's great to be involved. You can find my publications here.
