Adelle’s research looks at the objects we don’t see: the dense remnants of dead stars called black holes and neutron stars.

For her PhD thesis she was awarded the Astronomical Society of Australia’s prize for the most outstanding PhD thesis submitted in Australia for 2021 and the Royal Society of Victoria’s young scientist research prize.
