I am working on aspects of Cosmic Magnetism, which covers a range of topics. At the moment I am looking at a mechanism by which electrons can be accelerated (by collapsing current densities) at recombination and provide a non-thermal component to the Cosmic Microwave Background. I will also be looking at other distribution-related effects which contribute to the CMB, with a view to determining the limits on the information we can extract from it about the primordial Universe.
Other research interests include Galaxy formation.
