Professor of Physics, Durham University

I work on adaptive optics, and its applications. I am an applied physicist working on the boundary of physics, astronomy, vision science, biological sciences, and psychology.

I work in a Group of around 50 people - the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation, which is one of the Physics Departments 5 Major Research Groups. I am also a member of the Biophysical Sciences Institute and a fellow of the Wolfson Research Institute.

My research group designs and constructs instrumentation for large telescopes which the UK is involved with around the World. My general interests are in Optics and Photonics for a variety of applications including astronomy and vision science. More specifically I work on adaptive optics, vision science, and liquid crystal optics.
