His research interests centre on deep space, the study of stars exploding at the end of their lives and of distant galaxies believed to host super-massive black holes in their cores.
His aim is to share knowledge with the public and he has lectured on a vast array of astronomical subjects from the Moon to Black Holes and the end of the Universe. He is also a qualified pilot and lives in Norfolk.
