Biography

 I am in the Department of Astrophysics and Optics in the School of Physics at UNSW.  My main research area is Observational Cosmology. I lead the observational research at UNSW to search for variations in the fundamental constants of Nature, primarily using observations of high redshift quasars.

Further details about the varying constant research can be found here: http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/~jkw/alpha/Welcome.html
