Meet Astronomy Student Richard Lane

Astronomy student and Guide at Sydney Observatory

"I’m currently in my final year of a bachelor of science degree (astronomy and astrophysics) at Macquarie University. My main interests are black holes, active galactic nuclei (including quasars), gravitational lensing and cosmology-the study of the birth and evolution of the universe. I hope to have a career in astrophysics working at the Anglo-Australian Observatory, after the completion of my PhD."

"Working at the Observatory has been great for me, as it has put me in contact with many people with similar interests as well as professional astronomers. I get to work with lots of people and talk to them about my favourite subject-the universe."
