Roger Clowes is research active within the area of astrophysics and has  interests in cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics. Particular emphases are the large-scale structure of the early universe and the environments of quasars. With collaborator Luis Campusano (Univ. de Chile) he discovered the largest structure known in the early universe.
