I am a lecturer at the
University of Edinburgh, based at the Institute for Astronomy.
I have the pleasure of working with the CFHTLenS, the largest deep ground-based survey in existence, along with GEMS, STAGES and COSMOS, the three largest contiguous fields ever imaged with the Hubble Space Telescope.
All of these surveys are ideal for my main area of research into weak gravitational lensing .
Spectacular high resolution images of galaxies from GEMS
can be seen using The
The Shear TEsting Program
STEP lead to the GREAT challenges.
if you would still like access to the internal STEP pages.
For the GREAT08 challenge I've made public KSBf90, which is my software version of the typically used Kaiser, Squires and Broadhurst shape measurement method.
