Tutor at Clare College, Cambridge. His research has been in nuclear and
experimental elementary particle physics; in particular he was involved
in the discovery of a number of the early baryonic resonances. He has served
on many committees concerned with the teaching and examining of physics
and mathematics, at all levels of tertiary and undergraduate education,
and has taught physics and mathematics at Cambridge for over thiry years.
