|My research interests are in general relativity, cosmology and quantum gravity. I am President of the Australasian Society for General Relativity and Gravitation, and a member of the editorial board of Classical and Quantum Gravity.|
Amongst the permanent faculty in theoretical physics my research interests most closely intersect with those of Jenni Adams, Dharamvir Ahluwalia and Chris Gordon.
I currently have a research project, Gravitational energy and cosmic structure: What is the Universe made of?, from the Marsden fund administered by the RSNZ. I am supervisor to three PhD students: Ahsan Nazer, Cathy Neill and Nezihe Uzun. Some recent postdocs in our group, who have now moved on, were Teppo Mattsson and Ishwaree Neupane . Emeritus Professor Roy Kerr maintains an active association with our group. We have on-going interactions with Matt Visser's group at Victoria University of Wellington.
