My thesis was entitled “Gravitational Lenses and Conical Feedhorns” supervised by J.A. Peacock and W.K. Gear.

The subject was the theoretical modeling of the amplification of submillimetre background radiation by the gravitational lensing of foreground galaxy clusters, and design considerations for conical feedhorns on the Submillimetre Common User Bolometer Array for the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope.
