Peter Hatfield

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a postdoc working with Professor Steven Rose on problems in high energy density physics including inertial confinement fusion and laboratory astrophysics experiments. I am also working on a number of projects with Professor Matt Jarvis in galaxy evolution and cosmology. Research interests include: novel ICF designs, NIF, multi-wavelength astronomical surveys, the galaxy-halo connection, large-scale structure, hydrodynamical simulations, VISTA, SKA, EUCLID, LSST

I did my Undergraduate studies in Mathematics and my Masters in Astrophysics, both at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge. I did my DPhil in Astronomy at Lincoln College, University of Oxford. I am originally from Canterbury, Kent. Besides my studies, I have been involved in a wide variety of outreach and school research projects, in particular through the Institute for Research in Schools.
