Clive Dickinson is Professor of Astrophysics and Head of the Sun, Stars and Galaxies (SSG) group. He is also director of the MSc by research in astronomy and astrophysics programme Astronomy and Astrophysics.
Clive has been awarded numerous awards for his work including the Royal Astronomical Society's Michael Penston Prize for best UK PhD thesis (2004), an STFC Advanced Fellowship (2008) and ERC Consolidator Starting Grant (2012).
Clive's research spans Galactic astrophysics to cosmology. He specializes in characterizing and understanding diffuse Galactic foregrounds, which are a major contaminant of cosmic microwave background experiments (like Planck) and, more recently, low frequency intensity mapping experiments.
