Biographical Sketch:

B.Sc. (Hons) 1990 University of Melbourne M.Sc. 1992 University of Melbourne Ph.D. 1996 University of Toronto I joined the physics department as an assistant professor in the fall of 1999. Prior to this I was a NASA research fellow at the Department of Astrophysical Sciences, Princeton University. Before moving to Princeton I was a research fellow in Stephen Hawking's group at Cambridge University in England.

Interests:

My research focuses on the inteface between general relativity, astrophysics and early universe cosmology. I'm particularly interested in using cosmological bservations - such as the detailed measurements of the microwave backround radiation provided by the Wilkinson Micowave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP)- to study the size and shape of the Universe, and other fundamental issues connected with quantum gravity. My main area of research is the newly emerging field of Gravitational Wave Astronomy. I am a member of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory (LIGO) scientific collabotation, and the North American Nanohertz Gravitational Observatory (NANOGrav) collaboration.
