Me at ParanalI'm Roger Wesson, an astronomer working at University College London, where I carry out research on evolved stars and their outflows as part of the sndust group. Previously I spent four years in Chile, where I was a Fellow at the European Southern Observatory and spent 80 nights a year supporting operations at the Very Large Telescope, including nighttime support on UT3 (Melipal). Before that I was at UCL, where I was an undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoc. These pages contain information about my research.

I do a lot of astrophotography when I find myself in places with dark skies, and I am an ESO photo ambassador. More details on my photography page.


By a depressingly huge margin, the most popular part of of my website is CMBR, a game I made based on the wildly popular 2048. It has a sequel, CMBR2.
