Stephen Hawking's PhD thesis, explained simply
After Stephen Hawking's PhD thesis was made publically available, demand to read it crashed the website hosting it. Here's what it says.
I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow based in the Centre for Astrophysics Research (CAR) at the University of Hertfordshire. I did my Ph.D. at Durham University, followed by a post-doctoral position at Durham. I became a Banting Fellow at McGill University in Montreal in 2011 before coming to CAR in 2013.
My research focuses on the evolution of galaxies, with a special emphasis on obscured activity, the role of environment, and the properties and evolution of cold gas in and around galaxies.
In 2014 I published my first popular science book "Galaxy: Mapping the Cosmos", published by Reaktion Books.
