My research is within the field of cosmology: the study of our Universe. Cosmology seeks to investigate exciting questions such as how did our Universe begin? What is it made of? How is it changing?
As with any scientific endeavour, we need supporting evidence if we are to answer these questions. To gather this evidence we must probe beyond our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and begin making ‘extragalactic’ observations. A large part of my work looks at novel ways in which we can conduct observational cosmology.
