Respiratory symptoms and cross-shift lung function in relation to cotton dust and endotoxin exposure in textile workers in Nepal: a cross-sectional study (2015)
Journal Article

Objectives: Inhalation of a cotton-based particulates has previously been associated with respiratory symptoms and impaired lung function. This study investigates the respiratory health of Nepalese textile workers in relation to dust and endotoxin ex...

DUST in Nearby Galaxies with Spitzer (DUSTINGS): An Infrared Census of Extreme AGB Stars in Nearby Dwarf Galaxies (2015)
Conference Proceeding

Nearby resolved dwarf galaxies provide excellent opportunities for studying the dust-producing late stages of stellar evolution. DUSTiNGS (DUST in Nearby Galaxies with Spitzer) is a 3.6- and 4.5-μm imaging survey of 50 dwarf galaxies within 1.5 Mpc....

Detecting Long Period Variables in M 33 Using UKIRT-WFCAM Images (2015)
Conference Proceeding

We have used the UK InfraRed Telescope (UKIRT) to conduct a near-IR monitoring campaign to search for variable stars in the Local Group spiral galaxy M 33. Most of the 4643 detected variables appear to be Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars.
