I am a cosmologist.
I work on various topics including the formation of structure in the Universe and gravitational radiation, but most of my research involves the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), light left over from the very early Universe. I have been involved in the analysis of data from various experiments observing the CMB, starting with the MAXIMA and BOOMERaNG balloons which were the first to use maps of the CMB to measure the curvature of the Universe.
Now, I am on the teams for the EBEX and PolarBear CMB experiments, and am a co-Investigator on ESA's Planck Surveyor Satellite, which I work on with many other Planck Scientists from Imperial and all over the world.
More broadly, I am interested in the statistical analysis of astrophysical and cosmological data, in particular the application of Bayesian techniques.
I am currently teaching an undergraduate course in Cosmology.
