Chair, Panel for the Allocation of Telescope Time (PATT), Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC)
This is a major international committee, comprising astronomers from the UK, USA, Canada, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Holland and Australia, which oversees
the use of all the telescopes in which the UK has a financial stake. As Chair of PATT, I had direct responsibility for formulating procedures and policies for
the use of these facilities. In addition, I was responsible for assessing and
awarding all research grants to United Kingdom research groups, for travel costs associated with awards of observing time on ground-based telescopes. These grants covered travel costs to both PPARC (now STFC) and non-PPARC observing facilities.
