Extra information:

Before my early release from the ivory tower of academe, I was for a decade or so a research scientist and university teacher specialising in atmospheric and space physics.

I now concentrate on communicating science at various levels, with a focus on physical and environmental sciences and engineering, public outreach, education and policy.

While principally a writer, I am also an editor, with experience ranging from research papers and other technical documents to journalistic feature articles and news reports.

My science and technology interests are broad, and include the Earth sciences as a whole, together with astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering and information technology.
