Biography

I am the Liverpool Telescope Astronomer in Charge and a Reader in Time Domain Astrophysics. I am responsible for giving a science-led perspective to the day-to-day management operations of the Liverpool Telescope: the world's largest robotic telescope dedicated to science, a major research facility which is owned and operated by LJMU. I am also the deputy PI for the successor telescope: the much larger New Robotic Telescope, which is currently in development. My research activities are based around the time domain: the study of the changing universe. I'm particularly interested in binary star evolution, white dwarf science, and the new field of gravitational wave astronomy.
