The Deans of Faculty oversee a group of departments, supporting the activities in teaching, research, management, finance and human resources. In my case this is the science department and associated Inter Department Centres. A particular aim is to stimulate and encourage interdisciplinary activities
In addition I also serve on the University’s Executive Board (The Board), Planning Committee, Planning Sub-Group and Senate, as well as a range of other committees that support activities in the university.
In also retain a teaching and research programme in the Physics Department.
Since obtaining a PhD in 1977 I have been active in academic research and teaching, holding posts in the USA, a government research centre and universities.
My research area is nuclear physics and I specialise in studying the nuclear reactions which power explosive astrophysical objects like Nova, X-ray Bursters and Supernovae.
I was appointed to a chair at York in 2000 to build up the nuclear physics group. I later served as Chair of Graduate Studies and then a five year spell as Head of the Physics Department before taking on the role of Academic Coordinator, which became the Dean of Faculty role in January 2015.
I have served on the Council of Institute of Physics, the EPSRC Nuclear Physics Committee, STFC Science Council, the Editorial Boards of three journals and as Chair of NuPECC, the ESF Expert Body that coordinates nuclear physics in Europe.
I am a Fellow of the Institute of Physics.
External roles include:
I am also a past member of the EPSRC Peer College and the STFC PPAN Science Committee.
I act as an advisor on numerous research projects in other European universities and research funding bodies.
