Mars Buttfield-Addison is a computer scientist and software engineer currently working towards her PhD at the University of Tasmania. Her project—a collaboration with CSIRO Data61 and CSIRO Space & Astronomy—looks at how commensal processing can help in the adaptation of existing radio astronomy hardware to track satellites and prevent space debris without the need to build new and expensive dedicated sensors. Outside of her day job, she shares her love of technology by writing machine learning textbooks, speaking at developer events, teaching artificial intelligence and data science at UTAS, privately tutoring computer science, freelancing as both an app developer and a creator of interactive educational materials for STEM, and contributing to (and harassing people about) Open Source and software compliance.
