Research Overview

My research is focused on using distant supernovae for cosmology, specifically to measure the effects of Dark Energy in the universe. I am also involved in several future telescope projects including the European Extremely Large telescope (ELT), the Rubin Observatory that will carry out the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), the 4-metre Multi-Object Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST) and ESA's Euclid mission.
