I use a multi-wavelength approach to understanding massive X-ray binaries, their evolution and their role as tracers of star formation.  I am also particularly interested in how the Be star circumstellar discs influence the accretion process in Be X-ray binaries.


Recent projects include:


Massive X-ray binaries in the Magellanic Bridge                  Searching for LMXBs in the SMC













Monitoring and modelling of Gamma-ray binaries


Mapping Galactic Structure with Open Clusters
