Dr Imogen Jones


Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Neuromorphic Space


Imogen's current research fellowship involves finding new space-based applications for neuromorphic vision sensors. This includes on-orbit observations of lightning and satellites and terrestrial observations of atmospheric and astronomical phenomena.

She contributes to the Falcon Neuro mission, a collaboration between the US Air Force Academy and WSU, and has undertaken several observations of lightning terrestrially.

Imogen undertook two undergraduate degrees at the University of Tasmania and subsequently taught statistics to undergraduates, and was employed as a Data Analyst in several academic and Government roles. She completed a post-graduate qualification in Astronomy at Swinburne University, and was employed as a Radio Astronomer at AuScope and UTAS.

Imogen completed her PhD in the field of Applied Statistics at the University of Tasmania in 2022, investigating the application of the eLasso method of estimating the strength of relationships between variables to form sparse networks.

Research Interests

  • Observation of lightning from on Earth and above it
