I am a Reader in the Department of Physics, part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, at the University of Surrey. My research interests lie in nuclear structure theory. For a list of publications, see my research page. If you want to calculate angular momentum coupling coefficients, try my Clebsch-O-Matic. I sometimes blog about nuclear physics, or closely related things on blog of the isotopes, occasionally note down ways of using gnuplot on the Surrey Physics Plotters blog, and I am a contributor to technically have write-access on the Surrey Physics Blog, and STAGgering, a blog on Higher Education in general, with a Surrey emphasis.

Surrey courses I currently teach are: PHY1034: Essential Mathematics, PHY3038: Special Relativity, PHY3042: Modern Computational Techniques, PHY3002: Final Year Project, PHY3051: Research Year Skills, PHY3052: Literature Review and Interim Report and PHYM051: Research Year Dissertation. I am the coordinator of the Surrey MPhys Research Year.

My Erdős number is at most 5. Click here to see how. My Bacon number is 3 (if you are prepared to relax the rules somehwat). I don't think I have a finite Sabbath number, but I can't rule it out.

I am involved in various public engagement activities: I am a member of the Institute of Physics South Central Branch Committee and arrange the Guildford talks programme. I am the secretary of the European Physical Society Nuclear Physics Division. I sit on the Physics and Astronomy Section committee for the British Science Association. I also give talks to various societies and groups about physics, and about studying physics at university to schools.
