John [dot] Magorrian [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk
I am an astrophysicist in the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics.
My main research interest is modelling the structure and evolution of galaxies. This draws upon methods from classical mechanics, statistical physics, plasma physics and others. A particularly rewarding aspect of this work is the opportunity to test theoretical galaxy models against observation, which poses challenging inference problems.
