I am passionate about science, particularly physics and mathematics, I have authored two books on science (published by Routledge).

My particular interest is the interface between A-level pre-university and foundation/first year university for maths and physics students. Sometimes this transition is seen as a chasm rather than a transition.

Lecturer in Physics & Astronomy department, University College, London

Supervisor, Part 1a Mathematics Tripos, Cambridge

Lecture course given for University of Maryland at USAF Chicksands - Astronomy 101

Lecture course given at University of Luton in Computer Ethics

Publisher (and editor) of ten student textbooks in physics (including one A-level generic textbook)

I inhabit the interface between maths and physics. For me there is no dividing line.

My first degree was in physics. I did a masters year at Cambridge where I completed Part III of the Maths Tripos, (Wolfson College and the Department of Applied Maths & Theoretical Physics), which was followed by a PhD at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge. In my research I helped lay the foundational knowledge of gravitational lenses.

I am a member and former fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge.

*Good lesson*

*Mr. Nigel is a really patient teacher who helped me learn forces effectively. Thank yo very much.*

*Nigel is a great teacher with a very strong knowledge of lenses and mirrors. I was very pleased with the lesson and I look forward to my next lesson with him.*

*Very helpful work on integration*
