Professor A N Taylor, FRSE
Andy is a member of the following School research institute:
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 Theories of Gravity. To study these I have developed and led the analysis of Gravitational Lensing Surveys, the Cosmic Microwave Background, Galaxy Redshift Surveys, and Gravitational Wave Astronomy.
I lead the Weak Lensing Cosmic Shear Team for the European Space Agency's Euclid Satellite Dark Energy Mission, and the UK Science Ground Segment for Euclid:UK.
I am the Astrophysics Degree Programme Coordinator, and a supervisor for both Senior Honours and and Mphys Projects. I have taught many courses from 1st Year to Masters at the University, including
- Stellar Structure,
- Astronomical Statistics,
- Astrophysical Cosmology,
- Advanced Cosmology,
- General Relativity
- Radiation and Matter.
I have supervised over 21 PhD students, with the majority remaining in research.
