Dr. Alis Deason

I am an Associate Professor and Royal Society University Research Fellow at Durham University (2016-present). 

Previously, I was a Porat fellow at Stanford University (2015-2016) and a Hubble fellow at the University of California, Santa Cruz (2012-2015).


I obtained my PhD (2009-2012) at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge under the supervision of Vasily Belokurov and Wyn Evans. I studied Natural Sciences (Astrophysics) at Cambridge as an undergraduate (2005-2009). Before my time in Cambridge, I grew up in a small town in West Wales called Fishguard.

I'm also a big football fan! Check out our "Stargoal" initiative at Durham University:
