Here is a bit of information about the sorts of research I do. It is intended to be chatty and outline what subjetcts I'm interested in and how it came about that I do them. As you can see in some cases it was just chance that moved me into a particular area of research. If you're another scientist and want to get down to the nitty gritty please use the link at the bottom which lists my publications and look them up in a library or e-mail me for a reprint.
