Research Interests

  • Damped Lyman Alpha absorption systems in optical spectra of quasars; especially those showing narrow Lyman alpha emission from the galaxy/gas cloud which is absorbing the light from the background quasar.
  • Optical stellar interferometry, using the Sydney University Stellar Interferometer and aperture masking on existing telescopes.
  • Development of spectrographs for optical/IR telescopes, including the use of Volume Phase Holographic diffraction gratings, and Fourier Transform Spectroscopy.
  • Extragalactic radio source populations and cosmology.
