Hello and welcome to my website! My name’s Mike Peel – or if you want the acronym-filled version, it’s Dr Michael Peel MPhys FRAS AMInstP.

I am currently a FAPESP Young Investigator fellow at the Departmento de Física Matemática, Instituto de Física, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil. Before that I was Science & Technology Funding Council-funded postdoctoral researcher at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester, between 2010 and 2016.

I studied for a Masters in Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester in 2002-06 (see my notes from the lectures), followed by a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics at Jodrell Bank in 2006-10.

I am a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, as well as a member of the Institute of Physics, the Institute of Advanced Motorists, the National Trust and English Heritage.

My ORCID ID is 0000-0003-3412-2586.
