My Departmental WWW page
I have been a professional astrophysicist and a member of the Extragalactic & Cosmology Group at Durham for ~30 years, mainly specializing in imaging faint galaxies. Before that I took a degree in Physics, followed by a DPhil in Astrophysics, at Merton College, Oxford.

Learned astronomers in discussion
I am currently on the Science Council for the Pan-STARRS project, and chair of their Data Reducation Analysis and Verification Group. I was awarded 'Builder' status on the project in April 2013. You can see some publicity images of mine of the Pan-STARRS blog. I am also heavily involved in the VST Atlas survey.
