Now retired from a career in information technology, I’m able to pursue my long-held interest in astronomy by working towards a PhD in astrophysics via post-grad research at the School of Physics and Astronomy within the University of Southampton.

As an X-ray astronomer, I’m researching accretion onto compact objects, under the supervision of Professor Diego Altamirano.

There are all sorts of posts here (“Life, the Universe and Everything”) so feel free to trawl the lot or simply use the menu to split the ones related to my research away from the more general topics.
