Dr Madeline Marshall (Maddie, she/her)

Tasmanian astrophysicist.
Currently a Plaskett Fellow at the National Research Council Canada, Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Centre, in Victoria, British Columbia.
Studies galaxies and supermassive black holes in the early Universe using computer simulations and space telescopes.
Leading a James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) program to study the host galaxies of the first quasars, and involved with several other exciting JWST projects studying the early Universe.
Completed a PhD at the University of Melbourne and a BSc (Honours) at the University of Tasmania.

Read an overview of my most recent work simulating high-redshift quasar host galaxies and find out why we're so optimistic about JWST in this nice Physics magazine article. I explained my work with JWST, as well as chatting about the first JWST science images, on the science podcast Spaghettification, that you can listen to here. For a full update on JWST and the science it can do, check out my interview on the science podcast Curiosity Killed the Rat, James Webb Space Telescope: Round 2 (ft. Maddie Marshall & Benji Metha) (or wherever you listen to podcasts). For more articles, audio, and videos, see Public Outreach.
