Who I am: I have been at Imperial since 1994. My first degree was in Engineering and I worked as a Civil Engineer for 6 yrs, specialising in Geotechnics. I did my PhD at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, supervised by Paul Hewett, finishing in 1988, and then held a number of post-doc positions: a NATO Fellowship at Steward Observatory, Tucson, an ESO Fellowship at ESO Headquarters, Munich, and a Royal Society University Research Fellowship at Oxford. I have been the Survey Scientist for the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey since 2001.


Teaching: 2nd-yr course on Differential Equations, 2nd-yr tutoring, demonstrator for Computational Physics, member of admissions team.


Research Interests: I am primarily interested in discovering what is out there, and so I am interested in surveys, particularly for high-redshift quasars, and cool brown dwarfs. I am also interested in gravitational lensing, and quasar absorption lines.

Publications: ADSABS journal papers listing  

Other activities/interests: I am Vice Chair of the Anglo Australian Telescope Board.
