I'm an astronomer at the IAC 's Scientific Editorial Service, where I work as a scientific editor revising and formatting research articles for the astronomical press. I am Astronomy Adviser to the Oxford English Dictionary and a member of the editorial staff of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Conference Series. My main research is in Galactic structure. I have a keen interest in the history of astronomy, chairing the IAU Johannes Kepler Working Group and co-chairing the International Year of Astronomy 2009 Kepler Task Group.
