Helen Johnston


Dr Helen Johnston obtained her PhD at the California Institute of Technology. Subsequently she obtained postdoctoral appointments in The Netherlands, at the Anglo-Australian Observatory and at the University of Sydney. Her research interests are the study of neutron stars and black holes, especially those systems called X-ray binaries where the neutron star or black hole is accreting matter from a companion star.
We acknowledge the tradition of custodianship and law of the Country on which the University of Sydney campuses stand. We pay our respects to those who have cared and continue to care for the Country.
