I did a Physics degree in Cambridge and then did a Ph.D. in theCambridge radio-astronomy group. I then moved to Hawaii for athree-year postdoctoral research position. Another another postdocat the Space Telescope Science Institute, I became an assistantprofessor at the University of Toronto. I finally returned to theUK in 1994, when I took up my present position at Cardiff.
I currently teach Synoptic Astrophysics, a second-year course in which there are no formal lectures. I just set the students a real problem at the beginning of the class and let them get on with it.
