About Me

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.

Topic Expertise

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.
