Research Interests

Dr David Parkinson conducts research into how the Universe was formed and has evolved, using data to test Einstein's theory of gravity. The measurement of the mysterious accelerated expansion of the Universe implies either some force acting against gravity on large-scales, or that our understanding of gravity is incomplete. To test such theories, we use in large-area astronomical surveys tomeasure the motions of test particles, such as galaxies (in galaxy redshift surveys such as 2dFLenS and DESI) or photons (in optical lensing surveys, and radio continuum surveys such as EMU). David is also developing machine learning approaches to problems in astronomy, such as analysing large-data sets in a quicker and more accurate manner, or discovering new and previously unknown phenomena from the next generation of survey data.
