Biography in Brief

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:

  • Editor of European Journal of Physics A
  • Member of RIKEN Programme Advisory Committee (Japan)

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.
