Research interests

I am Head of Institute and Professor of Extra-Galactic Astronomy at the Institute for Astronomy, an institute within the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, and also part of the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and of the Institute of Physics, and currently hold a European Research Council Advanced Fellowship and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.

My research interests are in extragalactic astronomy and cosmology: galaxy formation and evolution, the cosmic history of star formation, the first galaxies and cosmic reionization, and the connection between the growth of galaxies and black holes.

I have taught many courses at various levels within the University, most recently the Level-11 Radiation & Matter course, details of which can be found at http://www.roe.ac.uk/~jsd/Rad_Matt.html.
