Current Research Interests

I am the IfA Wide Field Astronomy Units's science archive architect, and an experienced survey astronomer and software developer. Both the SuperCOSMOS Science Archive and the WFCAM Science Archive systems were designed by me. I have much experience in managing small research and development teams for both hardware and software processing and archiving systems. I am also a member of the European Space Agency's Gaia mission Data Processing and Analysis Consortium.

My personal astronomy research interest is in very low luminosity degenerate stars, that is white dwarfs and brown dwarfs. Because these objects are rare, cool and faint, their detection requires access to panoramic deep survey datasets in the optical and infrared. Hence my work in survey astronomy for the scientific community enables me to pursue this personal research interest.
