Main Research Interests
My main research interests are:
 Hairy black holes
 Classical black hole solutions in various models of gravity
 Classical stability of hairy black holes
 Quantum gravity phenomenology
 Quantum field theory in curved space
 Hawking radiation of brane black holes, as produced at
particle colliders
 Quantum states of rotating black holes
A list of my publications, and links to download papers, is available
at SPIRES
HEP.
1905 and All That:
An introduction to some of the ideas of special and general relativity,
from a seminar given to the Department of Pure
Mathematics at the University of Sheffield.
To Infinity and Beyond:
Following from ``1905 and All That'', another talk given to the
Department of Pure Mathematics, this time covering global and local
geometry in General Relativity.
A very informal (and hopefully amusing) presentation of ideas about
black holes and my research (for best results, use Microsoft Internet
Explorer, notes pages do not view as well in Netscape).
