spacecraft, due to be launched by ESA in 2009.
I am coordinating the effort to characterise
the polarization systematics of the Low
Galactic Synchrotron polarization, as a CMB foreground contaminant. With
my former student Zamri Zainal Abidin, I used
the 100-m Effelsberg
Radio Telescope to map polarized emission away from the Galactic plane,
in collaboration with Wolfgang and Patricia Reich and Richard Wielebinski.
Spectral mapping of DRAGNs, with my former Ph.D. student
Barnabas Rugyendo, Tom Muxlow and Robert Laing.
Optical jets in 3C galaxies, with, Stefi
Baum, Chris O'Dea, Bill Sparks, and Andre Martel.
Hercules A and other radio galaxies in X-ray clusters
(with my former student Nectaria Gizani and Simon Garrington).
