The University of Edinburgh
I am Professor of Cosmology in the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and winner of the Shaw Prize.

My research interests are in theoretical and observational cosmology: large-scale structure; galaxy formation and evolution; evolution of active galaxies; gravitational lensing. During 2015-2021, my work was supported by the COSFORM Advanced Grant from the European Research Council.
