Andrew Stuchbery completed BSc(Hons) and PhD degrees at the University of Melbourne. He came to ANU in 1983 as a joint ANU-Melbourne Research Fellow. Awarded the Pawsey Medal by the Australian Academy of Science in 1991, he also held an ARC Senior Research Fellowship from 1992-1997.
He is currently Convenor of the Master of Nuclear Science Program, which encourages students from diverse backgrounds to develop the scientific knowledge needed to inform debate on nuclear issues, without taking a particular position.
Professor Stuchbery’s research interests include studies of the structure of nuclei through gamma-ray spectroscopy methods, with an emphasis on the measurement and interpretation of electromagnetic properties using hyperfine fields. His present ANU-based research underpins experiments on rare isotopes at large-scale international radioactive beam facilities.
