Responsibilities within department
I am head of the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation and I am also Director of Education.
I have 5 L4 Project students.
My research group designs and constructs instrumentation for large telescopes which the UK is involved with around the World. My general interests are in Optics and Photonics for a variety of applications including astronomy and bio-imaging. More specifically I work on adaptive optics, biophotonics, and vision science. See our group pages, and my personal page for more info.
