I am a member of the Sussex Astronomy Centre. I use multi-wavelength observations of clusters of galaxies to test theories of the cosmological model and of structure formation. I am PI of the multi-national XMM Cluster Survey project and a member of the Dark Energy Survey; cluster working group. My research covers the following topics:

  • Observational Cosmology
  • Extra-galactic Surveys
  • Clusters of Galaxies
  • X-ray Astronomy
  • The Sunyaev'Zel'dovich Effect
  • Search for Warm Dark Matter
