Before I came to Durham, I started my education at the West Park Play
At the age of four I moved on to Mortimer Road
Primary School in South Shields. From there I went on to Newcastle Royal
Grammar School, where I was lucky enough to be taught by a number of
excellent teachers: Neil Goldie; Howard Burchell and Mrs. P. E. Perella to
name but three. From Newcastle I moved on to Christ
Church, Oxford. Here I divided my time between rowing and physics. Again
I was very lucky to be tutored by the legendary Prof. Derek Stacey.
After my four years at Oxford I worked for a year at Oxford Lasers, as a
Laser Test Engineer.
This was followed by about five months working in the Medical Physics
Department of Newcastle General Hospital. Following a short break, of
several months, I arrived in Durham to start my PhD in October 2002.
