Astrophysicist at Keele University, UK.
Expertise in general astrophysics, but more specifically in stellar astrophysics, star formation, exoplanets, chemical abundances and stellar evolution. I also teach undergraduate courses in electromagnetism, the physics of compact objects (white dwarfs, neutron stars, brown dwrfs, black holes) and general mathematics.
Scientists are not dependent on the ideas of a single man, but on the combined wisdom of thousands of men, all thinking of the same problem - Ernest Rutherford (seems appropriate for Physics SE, though it would have been better if he had acknowledged the contributions of the other 50% of the population...)
