West Midlands (Shrewsbury and Birmingham)
Physics Network Coordinator for Shrewsbury and Birmingham
I’m an engineer, lightly disguised as a physicist. As well as degrees in Aero Engineering, I also have one in War Studies.
After umpteen years in the RAF, I took up physics teaching in 1998. I’ve now given up full-time (paid) work. Aside from working for the IOP, I do some private tutoring and I also make a small contribution to the schools outreach programme of the Particle Physics Group at the University of Birmingham.
The usual walking and reading stuff. Also the restoration of old buildings: my own small Victorian house and also Bage's magnificent iron-framed flaxmill, a (long) stone’s throw from where I live.
To continue the good work done by my predecessor in Birmingham, from which I have benefited considerably over the years, and to extend the network to Shrewsbury and beyond.
