Life and Physics Blog

As of 31/8/2010 this blog mainly moved to  The Guardian. These pages will stay here too though and I occasionally add things which don’t really belong on the Guardian.

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.


Me

I’m a Professor of physics at UCL, where I am currently Head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. I do my research in the UCL High Energy Physics group, on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Contact details, links and more research & professional information on my homepage at UCL. Also, I am on twitter.


Disclaimer

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 or have been employed by or associated with. In fact, damn it, sometimes they aren’t even my own official views.
