"Durham University has a very good reputation worldwide and a number of the pioneers in the field of computational cosmology are based here, allowing me regular contact with some of the world-leading experts in astronomy, both in the form of the department’s staff and its frequent visitors.

The central theme of my PhD is trying to identify the nature of the mysterious component of the Universe that astronomers call ‘Dark Matter’. This continues to be a subject of great interest in the field, and it is very exciting to be involved at the very forefront of it."
