David Parkinson is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow based at the University of Queensland. His research is concerned with how the Universe was formed and has evolved, using astronomical data to test Einstein’s theory of gravity. Dr Parkinson has a Ph.D. from the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth and worked at the Astronomy Centre at the University of Sussex before joining the University of Queensland. He has worked on cosmological theory and observation, in both the optical and radio wavelengths, and published a book on the subject of Bayesian Methods in Cosmology. He is also an associate investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).
