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
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
Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics
Pennsylvania State University
under the supervision
Prof. Don Schneider.
I was also an e-science PPARC
PhD student in the
and Cosmology Group
Although nothing too fancy, hopefully these pages will give you a feel for the areas
at the Physics Department
of the University of Durham
and my supervisor was
Prof. Tom Shanks.
of research I am into, so please feel free to look around.
Other loves in my life include Hibs,
and of course my friends and family.
Any questions, comments or general tips for life would be much appreciated.
