I’m Gabe, I’m an Engineering/Astro student in Sydney at Macquarie with an interest in planetary science and engineering. I say “1st year”, but it’s complicated, but that’s where my skill level mostly is. I found out about PANOPTES through the university’s Observatory program and got to know Wilfred by helping out with outreach.
I’ve spoken a bunch to Wilfred and helped set up his PAN008 unit, I’m keen to get involved! I’m relatively new to my degree and don’t really know what I want to do yet, but most likely for this project I’d like to get involved in the software/data side as well as outreach. I’ve been an observatory guide for at least a year now.
I think for now I’ll try and immerse myself more in the project’s workings in my free time and check out the files/data, but if members can suggest tasks for a relative newbie, I’m more than happy to throw myself at it and see if I enjoy it. Looking forward to helping out!
