Utilising the power of MeerKAT, TRAPUM will discover numerous new pulsars and transient events in order to expand our knowledge of the populations of sources which emit at radio wavelengths on timescales ranging from microseconds to seconds. The discovery and continued study of these objects provides a powerful tool to improve our understanding of physics in extreme environments.

Dr Tana Joseph is currently the outreach and science engagement lead for one of MeerKAT’s large science projects, TRAPUM. In this role, she is serving as the digital media manager, media liaison and science engagement coordinator.
