I did an undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences (specializing in physics) at Cambridge University, graduating in 1991. I then did a PhD in astronomy at the University of Hawaii, graduating in 1997. Hawaii was a very good place to do astronomy because some of the best telescopes in the world are there. Next I returned to Cambridge, where I worked for 11 years as a research astronomer at the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge University. Most of my work concerned observations of distant galaxies, and studying the structure and evolution of galaxies over the age of the Universe.
I have tutored A-level and GCSE science subjects and also help students in a range of science courses at various levels. I have tutored a wide range of subjects, from molecular biology to geophysics.
