Professor Tim Bedding (School of Physics, Sydney Uni)

Tim read physics at Sydney Uni as an undergraduate, scoring a First and the University Medal in 1987. He was welcomed back for graduate studies, developing a masked-aperture optical interferometer on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. After a two-year postdoctoral stint at the European Southern Observatory, he returned to Sydney Uni as a physics lecturer in 1994, where he has remained ever since. Six years (2012-2018) as the Head of Physics, has added a few grey hairs but hasn't diminished his enthusiasm for his subject.

Tim is expert in stellar physics. He pioneered studies of the vibrations of stars ("asteroseismology") - a field which blossomed with the availability of high-precision photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft.
