I'm a post-doctoral researcher with a wide range of interests. I'm currently working in Earth systems science, but I have strong research interests in

  • the foundations of statistical mechanics and its relationship to information theory
  • the thermodynamic properties of radiation
  • non-equilibrium thermodynamics in general
  • complex systems

I'm also generally interested in the foundations of quantum mechanics and in black holes, though I wouldn't say I'm an expert in those things.

It's probably worth noting that despite my strong research interests in physics, all my degrees are in other subjects.
