Research interests

My Research Interests are in theoretical and Observational Cosmology, in particular the nature of Dark Energy and Dark Matter, the very Early Universe and modified thoeries of gravity. To study these I have developed and led the analysis of Gravitational Lensing Surveys, the Cosmic Microwave Background and Galaxy Redshift Surveys. I currently lead the UK-Science Ground Segment for the Euclid UK Team, and lead the Cosmic Shear team for Euclid. 

I am the Astrophysics Degree Programme Coordinator, Mphys and SH/IM Astrophysics Project Coordinator and a supervisor for both SH/IM and Mphys Projects. I have taught many courses from 1st Year to Masters at the University and currently teach the Level-11 General Relativity course.
