I am a soft matter computational physicist, and my current research is mostly in two areas. The first is the nucleation of crystals, and other processes driven by so-called rare events, and the second is biological physics. Nucleation is the first step in the formation of a crystal, and it is a rare event in the sense that only one nucleation event is required to make a crystal. My biological physics research is mainly into the dynamics of proteins inside cells.
For further details of my research, see my Research page. I like to think that, when the caffeine and blood sugar levels are high enough, I am a pretty good scientist, but nowadays metrics are very fashionable; by one metric I am about twice as good as a Nobel (and Ignobel) prize winning scientist's hamster.
I contribute to a blog. You can see there for slightly random thoughts on science that I find interesting.This site uses a template by FreeCSSTemplates. Thanks to them. The picture above is of a bay in my native south Wales.
