Dr. Sascha Schediwy

Sascha is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Western Australia (UWA) working in the Frequency and Quantum Metrology Lab with Professor Michael Tobar on the development of ultra-precise laser timing links to support the next-generation of pioneering space missions. This work includes the establishment of a long-haul optical fibre timing link between UWA and the Western Australian Space Centre (WASC), and free-space laser timing link between the Western Australian Space Centre, and the International Space Station.

Sascha is also a member of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Signal and Data Transport (SADT) consortium, where he is the lead designer of the phase synchronisation system for the mid-frequency SKA telescope.

During his postdoctoral position at Oxford Astrophysics, he was involved in the development of phased array technologies for the SKA, and previous to that, he worked on planetary science and gravitational-wave astrophysics.
