I am involved in the following Projects:
DAZLE - Dark Age z Lyman-alpha Explorer. A near-infrared narrow-band imager for studying Ly-alpha at very high redshifts
Project 1640 - an Integral Field Spectrograph to find exoplanets
CIRPASS - the Cambridge IR Panoramic Survey Spectrograph
Lucky Imaging - high speed imaging to beat atmospheric turbulence
WFMOS - the Wide-Field Fibre-fed Multi-Object Spectrograph. I am currently working on the optical design of this spectrograph, which is targetting the Subaru 8.2m Telescope located on Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
CIRPASS has been used extensively at Gemini South, the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) and the William Herschel Telescope (WHT).
