Research

I am an honorary research fellow in the Astrophysics & Space Research Group at the University of Birmingham. I was previously a postdoctoral fellow in the Astrophysics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and before that at the University of Calgary. My main research interests are: Wide-field radio astronomical imaging; polarization imaging, calibration and statistics; magnetic fields in the Universe: galactic, planets, low mass stars; extrasolar planets (detection and atmospheric studies); planetary and stellar magnetospheres; brown dwarfs, low frequency radio observations; electron cyclotron maser emission. On these pages you will also find my full publication history.

Low Frequency Radio

lowfreq

Low frequency observations are challenging. Radio Frequency Interference causes huge issues. Widefield imaging techniques are required to accurately image the data. Read More.

Survey Astronomy

The statistical analysis of radio source counts can be used to investigate the evolution of galaxies. Fast and accurate algorithms are required for the SKA pipeline. Read More.

Planets & Stars

Extrasolar planets are believed to produce strong bursts of radio emission and is related to processes in ultra-cool stars. I also work on occasion on optical photometric observations. Read More.
