I was born and brought up in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I studied Electrical and Information Sciences in the Department of Engineering of the University of Cambridge; my college was Girton College. I stayed on and did a PhD under the supervision of Prof Gehan Amaratunga; after this I obtained a Junior Research Fellowship at Girton College, and was also the college Praelector.
After 11 years in Cambridge I left to join Texas Instruments in Dallas, Texas, and after that I returned to the UK to live in London where I live now. I spent about 6 years with Cambridge Semiconductor Ltd ending up as Head of IC Design. For the last 2 years I have worked for DNA Electronics Ltd, a spin-out from Imperial College. I started there as their Senior Analog IC Design Engineer, but now I am the Head of Electronic Engineering.
My interests are: (i) playing the pipe organ, of which there is plenty on this website, (ii) singing, at present in the choir of St Giles-in-the-Fields and (iii) Association Croquet (handicap 6) - I am a member of Parson's Green Croquet Club.
