Research interests

My research interests centre on clusters of galaxies and the properties of the galaxies they contain, notably Brightest Cluster Galaxies.

I direct the Wide-Field Astronomy Unit and have developed interests in a wide range of computational issues that relate to the management and publication of sky survey data.

I currently teach the Level 10 Cosmology course and coordinate Senior Honours Projects.

I am a Personal Tutor, providing guidance to almost 30 undergraduates enrolled on a number of the School's degree programmes.
