Prof Angela Taylor
Research Fellow and Stipendiary Lecturer in Physics
Professor of Experimental Astrophysics
I work in the area of experimental cosmology, designing, building and using novel radio/mm telescopes. My research interests include:
- Development of new mm/radio-instrumentation
- Polarized foregrounds
- CMB instrumentation and observations
- Clusters of galaxies via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect
I am currently the PI for the C-BASS experiment and also part of the Oxford team working on the SKA, leading the development of the high-frequency (Bands 3,4,5) receivers for the SKA dish array. Past projects include the following CMB and SZ projects: CBI, VSA and AMI.
I am a tutor at St Peter's College for first year courses in Mechanics, Special Relativity, Optics, Circuits and Electromagnetism.
I am head of labs for the 1st year Electromagnetism Practical Class and supervise 4th year MPhys projects.
