I'm currently teaching part of the pre-honours Astrobiology course, together with Charles Cockell and a few guest lecturers. The course is aimed at introducing students to the basics of astrobiology, but with some focus on basic physics and the relevant astrophysics. The course homepage can be accessed on WebCT through the MyEd portal

I'm currently organising and co-teaching the new Senior Honours Astrophysics course. This is intended to be the core astrophysics course for Astrophysics students, but is open to all Senior Honours physics students. I'm also helping with the Junior Honours Research Methods course and this year my project is focussing on the possibility that all stars might have planets.

I generally supervise 1 MPhys and 1-2 Senior Honours research projects every year. Some recent projects are
