Biography

I am the Director of the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation which develops advanced instrumentation for large ground- and space-based telescopes, with spinoffs into imaging for the life sciences, fusion diagnostics and remote sensing. I am also a member of the Centre for Astronomy and Astropjhysics and the Extragalactic Astronomy & Cosmology Group. My technical interests are in adaptive optics, infrared integral field spectroscopy, fusion diagnostics and hyperspectral remote sensing. On the observational astronomy side I work on extragalactic globular cluster systems as probes of galaxy formation theories and on the evolution of galaxies in clusters. I am the Principal Investigator for KMOS, a £15M multi-object, near-infrared, integral field spectrometer constructed for the 8.2m ESO Very Large Telescope in Chile, and for SALT-HRS, a high-resolution echelle spectrograph for the 11m diameter South African Large Telescope. I am currently supervising 6 PhD students working in the field of fusion diagnostics.
