Hi there and Welcome!

My name is Nic and I am a Postdoctoral Researcher Scholar in the
Berkeley Cosmology Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.
My research is connected with the formation, evolution and clustering
properties of Luminous Red Galaxies (LRGs) and quasars using the
2SLAQ SDSS and SDSS-III: BOSS surveys.
I am currently the Chair of the BOSS Quasar Science Working Group
and led the Quasar Target selection for BOSS,
which has discovered over 70,000 redshift z>2 quasars.

Previously, I was Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the
Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the
Pennsylvania State University under the supervision
Prof. Don Schneider.

I was also an e-science PPARC PhD student in the Extragalactic and Cosmology Group
at the Physics Department of the University of Durham and my supervisor
was the one
and only Prof. Tom Shanks.

Although nothing too fancy, hopefully these pages will give you a feel for the areas
of research I am into, so please feel free to look around.
Other loves in my life include Hibs, Trevs, Colours and of course my friends and family.
Any questions, comments or general tips for life would be much appreciated.

Have fun!
