Overview of Research

I work primarily in extragalactic astronomy and observational cosmology. My research is focused on the question of galaxy formation and evolution , mainly from the observational point of view, but also including some modelling. My work combines detailed studies of local galaxies with observations of the galaxy population at intermediate and high redshifts.

Details on my Galaxy Formation and Evolution research can be found here. See also the research pages  of the Nottingham Astronomy Group.
I am also interested on new instruments with unique observational capabilities. I was involved in the early stages of the development of the EMIR Spectrograph , and I am involved in its scientific exploitation though the Galaxy Origins and Young Assembly (Goya) project.  EMIR
