Andrew O'Brien is currently a PhD Candidate at the University of Western Sydney. His research is in the field of radio astronomy. Along with a consortium comprised of both Australian and international members, Andrew is studying a large 100 square degree field of the southern sky. In astronomical terms, this is an extremely large area and is expected to reveal thousands of previously unstudied radio sources.

Andrew graduated from the University of Western Sydney as a Bachelor of Computer Science (Advanced) in 2012 and was awarded the Dean's Medal for his achievements. Andrew then graduated as a Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) in 2013 with First Class Honours and was awarded the University Medal for his research on the nearby Sculptor Group galaxy, NGC 55.

In 2013, Andrew was accepted into the Graduate Student Program at CSIRO Astrophysics and Space Science (CASS).
