SUMMARY (with links):
I am currently an Emeritus Astronomer at CTIO with some special responsibilities (at local and international level) for controlling light pollution.

I obtained my PhD in 1967. I have published over a hundred refereed research papers and a similar number of non-refereed contributions (see lists below) covering topics in x-ray, optical, infrared, submillimetre, and longer-wavelength radio astronomy. My primary interest has been in the discovery and observational study of quasars and active galactic nuclei and the properties of absorption material along the lines of sight.  I have worked as a staff astronomer at national and international observatories in the US, UK, Australia and Chile. I have built astronomical instruments in the US and in the UK and have also set up and led an instrumentation-engineering group at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh (that group later became the UK Astronomy Technology Centre). I was a consultant to the (then) UK SRC on the design and application of prisms for the discovery of quasars with the UK Schmidt telescope in Australia.  

On the administrative side, I was one of two scientists charged in the early 70s with preparing the scientific case for what is now the UK component of the international observatory on La Palma in the Canary islands.  While in Hawai'i, I was elected and then re-elected as an (international) at-large member of the AURA Board of Directors.   I served on AURA's international search committee for the Gemini project scientist (and proposed the winning candidate, who later became Director of Gemini, Director of the Space Telescope Science Institute and is now President of AURA): I served also as (elected) chairman of the Observatories' Advisory Committee (OAC) with ex-officio membership of AURA's executive committee (now simply called "The Board"). The OAC (later known as the OC) then oversaw AURA's management of its three (US) national ground-based observatories including the National Solar Observatory, as well as dealing with (and helping to develop) the US interests in GEMINI

Before returning to Chile in 1993, I was the Director of the UK/Canada/Netherlands Joint Astronomy Centre in Hawaii, which operated what were then the world's largest dedicated infrared (UKIRT) and single-dish submillimetre-wave (JCMT) telescopes for the benefit of the international community of astronomers. I played a significant part in attracting to Hilo many of the organizations currently located in the UHH Research Park in Hilo.
For thirteen years, through to the end of March, 2007, I acted as Representative of  AURA in Chile - a quasi-diplomatic position recognised by the Chilean government. This role expanded in 1998 when I was appointed Head (later the first Director) of the AURA Observatory in Chile - which includes the telescopes on Cerro Pachón (Gemini South and SOAR ), on Cerro Tololo (including those operated by the SMARTS consortium), plus the southern parts of the US Gemini Project Office, and of NOAO's Major Instrumentation and Data Products Programs (i.e. "NOAO-South") and the AURA Observatory Support Services group (AOSS).  By 2007, the AURA Observatory in Chile had grown to around 223 staff from about 20 countries; ~170 of our employees were Chilean hires.  I played a significant role in the legislation promulgated by the Chilean Government to cover its involvement in the Gemini Project.  Until 2007, I was involved in negotiations with the Chilean Authorities regarding possible future sites in Northern Chile for the TMT all of which I had visited (and which included Cerro Armazones at 3,060m, which became the site that was recommended by the ESO Site Selection Advisory Committee for the 40m E-ELT; the SSAC noted that "For the sake of efficiency", the sites - all in North and South America - preselected by the TMT site selection team from the US - "were not studied by the ESO team, as the TMT shared their data with the SSAC".  Cerro Armazones was selected by ESO on 26th April 2010.  The TMT management showed greater interest in installation on Mauna Kea.  In the IAU, many of us liked the resultant north-south balance, but we needed to learn greater sensitivity to local cultural beliefs in Hawaii (as discussed in a conference in Hilo, Hawai'i, immediately following the IAU General Assembly in Honolulu).
I had earlier stepped down (in November, 2003, at my own request) after ten years' service as the Director of the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in charge of the southern operations of the US National Optical Astronomy Observatory ("NOAO South").   It was a great period to be at the observatory.  In early March 1994 I had set out a summary vision for the observatory in the NOAO Newsletter No. 37, describing the current state of CTIO, the need for change, current priorities and longer-term changes.  ~150 refereed papers were published each year during that ten-year interval, based on data taken at Cerro Tololo. In 1998, Science awarded its "Breakthrough of the Year" prize to two independent research groups for their work on a possible acceleration in the expansion of the universe; (the 1997 prize was for the cloning of "Dolly" the sheep). This cosmological research was based on measurements of type Ia supernovae, discovered using the wide-field survey capabilities at CTIO; the research led eventually to the award of the Nobel Physics Prize in 2011 (see especially pp 9-13 at this link) to the leaders of the two groups involved.  NOAO South had other units (apart from Cerro Tololo) involved in site surveys for a 30-meter segmented-mirror telescope, as well as checking site conditions for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope.   The basic operations of NOAO South cost approximately $6M per annum.  Previous Directors of Cerro Tololo were Drs. Jurgen Stock, Victor M. Blanco, Patrick S. Osmer and Robert E. Williams.  Dr. Alistair Walker served during the period 2003-2008.  Dr. Christopher Smith, who is currently the local director of AURA activities in Chile, served as CTIO director during the period 2008-2012; the current director is Dr. Steven Heathcote.
I was elected an Associate of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2004.

I  took a 5-month sabbatical in the UK at Durham University, England, which was followed by a round-the-world trip in May-June 2008 including giving 4 lectures  at a summer school on cosmology in Beijing (May), attending the IAU's EC84 in Norway (late May) and attending the International Dark-Sky Association's annual board meeting in Tucson in early June.

Most recently I have become quite heavily involved in the world-wide effort to control light pollution as an environmental and astronomical imperative, along with the associated public affairs, outreach and education effort. Chile has committed to a multi-year lighting replacement project involving three, astronomically-sensitive, northern Regions. In 2006 I completed a three-year term as President of IAU Commission 50, which was in charge of the protection of existing and potential astronomical observatory sites, world wide. Before that, I was the first chairman of the Commission 50 Working Group, which was charged with controlling light pollution around existing and potential observatory sites. I served for 9 years as a member of the Board of Directors of the International Dark Sky Association, the leading international body supporting the control of light pollution.  In August 2006 I began a three-year term as President of (the then) IAU Division XII, which included Commission 50 and Commissions which were related to Astronomy Education and Development and to Communicating Astronomy with the Public. We helped the various Commissions within Division XII to combine their disparate interests in the context of the International Year of Astronomy (2009) in honor of Galileo Galilei.  

I was a member of the Scientific Organizing Committee of the first meeting of the UNESCO - sponsored "Starlight" initiative on La Palma in the Canary Islands, which was held in April, 2007. Interestingly, the honorary President of the Committee of Honour was His Royal Highness, the King of Spain. Following on from this, I joined the IAU Working Group on Astronomy and World Heritage (under the chairmanship of Clive Ruggles) and started work within the "Starlight" group (led by Cipriano Marin) on seeing how to arrange a nomination of Northern Chile as a potential UNESCO World Scientific Heritage site as a way to protect the night sky here as a heritage for future generations, as well as protecting the ESO, Las Campanas and AURA observatory installations so as to be suitable for the powerful optical telescopes that are scheduled to be arriving within the next decade (and so will need dark skies for the lifetime of these facilities). I was also invited to attend the second and third (and associated) meetings in the multidisciplinary "Starlight" series at Fuerteventura (Canary Islands, March/April 2009) and Lake Tekapo (New Zealand, South Island, June 2012).  Follow up efforts were made at the IAU General Assembly in China (August 2012) to secure IAU support (and present aural contributions). While in Beijing, I was awarded the IDA's David Crawford Lifetime Achievement Award. I have recently (August 2016) been recognised as a Founding Lifetime Member of the International Dark Sky Association.  Most recently (January, 2017) I received an invitation (on behalf of the Cabildo Insulár de La Palma and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canárias) to present a talk in April (2017) related to preserving the cultural values of Starlight at the tenth anniversary of the "Starlight Declaration" resulting from the first in this conference series (see Invited Reviews list #23 below).  This recent conference included summaries (by otheers) of the work we have been doing in Chile, La Palma and Hawaii and some other potential, more historical sites in preparing UNESCO Extended Case Studies to pass on to the relevant national governments for them to consider in possible approaches by those governments to UNESCO to seek to have these sites declared UNESCO World Heritage sites.  I was also invited (in January, 2017) by the international Light Pollution Experts Coalition, (members of the European Environmental Bureau) to provide comments on their proposed "Minimum Requirements for the European Union Green Public Procurement Criteria for Road Street Lighting and Traffic Signals". 

Following on from the Expert Meeting in Fuerteventura it was resolved that "After the Fuerteventura meeting (Starlight Reserves and World Heritage: Scientific, Cultural and Environmental Values, April 2009), and taking into account the Kazan recommendations (UNESCO-IAU Conference on Astronomy and World Heritage, August 2009), the group of experts was convened with the aim to go forward on the identification of case studies, contents and proposals of natural areas, nightscapes and exceptional sites for astronomical observation that should be included in the World Heritage List. The second objective has been to analyse and propose coordination, dissemination and networking actions to promote the defence of star-related cultural, scientific and natural heritage, and of those places that can be promoted as starlight and dark sky reserves."

The "Case Study" (UNESCO-speak) that I prepared for the AURA Observatory in Chile (as the most threated by light pollution of the primary sites in northern Chile) was selected along with those for Hawaii and the Canary Islands for the next stage - an "Extended Case Study".  These Extended Case Studies, prepared in early 2012, were discussed at the "Starlight" meetings in New Zealand and finalized at and shortly after the IAU General Assembly in China (August 2012). These serve as examples that "States Parties" to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention can use if the authorities in the countries concerned wish to take things further.  We have been hoping to encourage a "Serial Nomination" involving Chile, Spain, the USA and several other countries in this attempt.  Much more detailed information about this effort is included in the links given in this part of the CV.

In 2015 I also became become involved (by invitation) in nomination work for potential new IDA Dark Sky sites in Chile.  I was the "AURA Proposal Leader" for the (successful) nomination of the Chile AURA Observatory Site as the world's first International Dark Sky Sanctuary and attended the announcement of this designation at a special meeting in Honolulu in August, 2015, just before the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union. 


A much more extensive (NSF-sponsored) oral summary of my career has been prepared in conjunction with Dr. Patrick McCray and is deposited, along with a written transcript, in the permanent collections of the Niels Bohr Library of the American Institute of Physics Center for History of Physics.  (At my request, this ~120-page summary will not be generally available on the internet until after my death, to avoid unnecessarily re-igniting old controversies or propagating inaccuracies that can arise from a limited historical perspective.  Partial accounts of my career, some filling the personal gaps in Dr. McCray's account, have been published by others elsewhere).
