Congratulations to our students for finishing the Imperial Astrophysics exam (and to us for making it through without having made any mistakes). Next up: marking…

Excellent Planck swag: an original backup data DVD.

Planck launch, 10 years ago this week.

Commuting across London five days a week to nursery (day care) with my two girls, one in a buggy (stroller), another walking, is the most stressful thing I’ve ever done.

I just got my student tutorial evaluations, and scored very well, averaging somewhere between “agree” and “strongly agree” in all categories: good feedback, answers to questions, and preparation. Unfortunately, only 5 (of 40) students bothered to respond.

Congratulations to Nick Kaiser & Joe Silk for the 2019 Gruber Cosmology Prize, “for their transformational work on cosmological structure formation & dark matter”. I’m honoured to have worked with (and, long ago, been hired by) both of them!
