About the Blog
As of 31/8/2010 this blog mainly moved to a new home at The Guardian. These pages will stay here too though and I will add occasional things which don’t really belong on the Guardian for whatever reason.
The content of these pages is my own, and unless explicitly stated otherwise it doesn’t represent the official views of UCL, ATLAS, Science Board, STFC, the Royal Society, the Butterworth family, English people with brown hair or any other group I am employed by or associated with. In fact, damn it, they probably aren’t my own official views.
After participating in a panel discussion about science blogging I wrote this about why I blog.
Versions of two of the posts in this blog have appeared in the New Scientist‘s S-Word, one of which received a response from the Science Minister. Several more appeared in the Guardian‘s science blog even before I moved the main blog over there.
I’m a physics professor at UCL, where I am Head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. I do my research in the High Energy Physics group on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
I am currently member of the STFC Science Board.
I do talks in schools on my research etc… Please get in touch if you are interested in one of those.
Contact details, links and more research & professional information on my homepage at UCL.
I am on twitter.
Incomplete collection of vaguely sciencey Public and Media things.
Some random other stuff
Play the guitar occasionally. e.g. at Brookfield School Fair 2009 [note the libel reform T-shirt] and, better, in 2010 and for Geekpop: Ausgabe Drei (see here for background and, bonus track Sunshine Train). Also on the Resonance project ATLAS CD (briefly).
