I'm a Professor in the
School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham.

I work on astroparticle physics, at the interface between particle physics and astrophysics. I’m a member of the
Particle Cosmology Group and also interact closely with the Astronomy Group.

Currently my main focus is
dark matter. I’m particularly interested in the signals expected in WIMP and axion detection experiments and what we can learn about the properties of dark matter. I also work on early Universe cosmology, in particular primordial black holes as a probe of models of inflation.

I’m actively involved in various outreach activities, ranging from
schools talks to an In Our Time episode on Dark Matter on Radio 4. I lecture 2nd year Fourier Methods and 3rd year Introduction to Cosmology, supervise 3rd and 4th year projects on dark matter and inflation, and am head of 1st year.

Here are my
CV, contact details and directions to find the Centre for Astronomy and Particle Theory.

When I’m not doing physics I like to
run very long distances (very slowly...) and travel.
