Ashkbiz Danehkar

I am an Astrophysicist (Principal Investigator) at Eureka Scientific funded by NASA grants from 2022. Prior to taking this position, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Michigan (2019–2021), and a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (2015–2018). I obtained my PhD in Physics and Astronomy from Macquarie University. My research interests include theoretical astrophysics and observational astronomy. I carried out my research on planetary nebulae at Macquarie University between 2010 and 2014 and have been involved with the physical conditions, chemical abundances, morpho-kinematics, and ionization structures. During my postgraduate studies at Queen’s University Belfast in 2009, I studied linear and nonlinear solitary wave structures in multi-species suprathermal plasmas using numerical methods. I was an early-stage researcher at the University of Craiova in 2008, involved in constrained dynamics for gravitational physics.
