Bok Lecture - ASTRO 3D: Unveiling the Universe in 3 Dimensions
The ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) is a $40M Centre of Excellence, which is producing a comprehensive picture of the build up of mass, angular momentum, and the chemical elements from the first stars, to (and including) the Milky Way. Our surveys include the measurement of the power spectrum at the Epoch of Reionization with the Murchison Widefield Array in Western Australia, large hydrogen surveys with the Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, the ongoing Australian 3D imaging surveys of 10,000 galaxies with the Anglo Australian Telescope, a large galaxy evolution program covering 12 billion years of cosmic time, and a major Australian Galactic Archaeology program to track the chemical and mass assembly history of our Milky Way with the Anglo Australian Telescope. I will describe the recent discoveries made in ASTRO 3D, as well as providing an update on our ambitious equity and diversity programs, and our nationwide education and public outreach programs.

Director, ASTRO3D @ANU
Lisa Jennifer Kewley is a Professor and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow at the Australian National University. Kewley obtained her PhD in 2002 from the Australian National University on the connection between star-formation and supermassive black holes in galaxies. She was a Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Fellow and a NASA Hubble Fellow. Her awards include the 2006 American Astronomical Society Annie Jump Cannon Award, the 2008 American Astronomical Society Newton Lacy Pierce Prize, and the 2020 US National Academy of Science James Craig Watson Medal. In 2014, Kewley was elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science “for her fundamental advances in understanding of the history of the universe, particularly star and galaxy formation”, and in 2015, Kewley was awarded an ARC Laureate Fellowship, Australia’s top fellowship to support excellence in research. Kewley is currently implementing her scientific vision through her Australian Research Council Centre o
