I was an undergraduate at Newcastle
University, where I studied Theoretical Physics before moving to the
University of Sussex in 1989 to complete
a D.Phil in astrophysics supervised by Prof Peter Thomas. After
a period of postdoctoral research in Sussex I became the PDRA for the
an international group specialising in computer simulations of the Universe.
In 1997 I moved to the University of
Durham as a rolling grant PDRA before being awarded a PPARC advanced fellowship at the University of Nottingham in 2001.
After completing my AF I took up a lectureship in Nottingham and was promoted to a readership in 2006 and a professorship in 2014.

I specialise in the theory of the formation of structure in the Universe, being particularly interested in modelling the evolution of clusters of galaxies using some of the worlds largest parallel supercomputers. Additionally I have interests in the X-ray emission from clusters and the feedback of energy due to supernovae explosions.
