Biography

Dr Eric Tittley is the High Performance Computing Specialist at the Institute for Astronomy at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, a position taken up in 2009 after being a Postdoctoral Research Associate since 2003.  Eric provides high-performance computing support for groups within the Institute, including computer cluster administration, parallel programming guidance, and performance tuning.

Dr Tittley's research area is the Intergalactic Medium with emphasis on the effect of hydrogen and helium reionisation on the warm-hot intergalactic medium and the state of disrupted galaxy clusters.  Consequently, he is heavily involved with numerical simulations of cosmological gas dynamics, including radiative processes.

Eric is also the Research Staff Committee representative for the School of Physics and Astronomy, head of the Physics and Astronomy Research Staff Society, IfA representative on the ROE Ecological Advisory Group, Chair of the Principal Users Group for the School of Physics and Astronomy, and IfA Web Administrator.
