I am particularly interested in how the physics of the very Early and Late Universe could be tested by observations of both the largest scales (astronomy) and the smallest scales in the universe (particle physics). The overlap of these areas is known as particle cosmology. It offers the hope that we can test paradigms such as string theory, the Inflationary universe, cosmic strings, dark energy as well as understand the nature of the initial singularity in the universe. More details about the research of the particle physics group can be found at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/physics/research/particles/index.html Publications (this link is more up to date than the tab above) : https://inspirehep.net/search?ln=en&p=a+copeland%2Ce&of=hb&action_search=Search&sf=earliestdate&so=d
