Now retired, 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 Royal Society Research Fellow, Dr Diego Altamirano.

On this site there are two blogs, one related to my research and the other providing me with somewhere to air my views on anything that either bugs or interests me.
