Lectures

ANITA supports the ongoing education of astronomy students, postdocs and staff by hosting a series of monthly online lectures. These lectures cover a wide range of topics: from basic statistics and computational techniques, to advanced specialised subjects and more.

External lectures

Lectures are given by ANITA members and external experts. Each lecture will be an hour long and run through Google’s Hangouts on Air. If you’d like to give a lecture, please contact Darren Croton. Past lectures will remain available online (follow the links below).
