Research Interests

Radio astronomical research applied to a wide range of topics. Current interests include deep low-frequency radio surveys with the Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in India, and various studies of Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs), with particular interests in statistical studies, and "filled-centre" remnants.
