This is mostly just a page of links (many now out of date) that I find
useful as jumping-off points into the web. There is also some CV stuff. Contact details are at

I'm Professor of Astrophysics and
Head of the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics at
the University of Hertfordshire.
Prior to that I was the Director of
the Centre for
Before moving to UH in 2004 I was a PDRA
and Royal Society
in the Astrophysics Group of
the Physics Department in
the University of Bristol. I did
my first degree at Churchill
College in the University of
Cambridge and my PhD in
the Mullard Radio Astronomy
Observatory (now the Astrophysics Group), part of the
Cambridge Physics Department.
Subsequently I did some courses with
the Open University, ending up
with a BA and Diploma in Classical Studies, and for some years I was a
Lecturer for them, teaching Astrophysics. In 2019 Cambridge
the ScD degree. I've worked, among other
things, as computer manager
for Churchill College, as a
research associate (funded by Cambridge Positioning Systems) and in
various other capacities for Cambridge
University and as an associate radio astronomy consultant
for RPC Telecommunications.
For a while I was
acting Starlink manager for
Bristol. I'm a member of the IAU and
a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical
Society, the Higher
Education Academy, the Institute of
Mathematics and its Applications and the Institute
I'm interested in the physics of jets in radio galaxies
in their emission and environments as observed in the X-ray, and in
unified models for extragalactic radio sources. Supplementary
interests include groups and clusters of galaxies, microquasars,
catalogues and sky
surveys and statistics. See my research
group web page for more.
