Background

I grew up in South Africa and did my undergraduate and Masters degree at the University of the Witwatersrand. I then worked in the environmental and mineral exploration industries as a researcher in remote sensing. After several years working in industry, I returned to academia and completed a PhD at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation in Portsmouth (UK). This was followed by postdocs at the Universities of Cambridge and Chicago. I then had a five year postdoctoral position at the University of Oxford. In December 2011, I was appointed in a continuing position as a lecturer at the University of Canterbury.
