Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert first graduated from the University of Durham (UK) in 1974 with an upper second class honours degree in Applied Physics. He spent about the first 10 years of his career in industry, working for Schlumberger (as a wireline logging engineer in Australia), Marconi Space and Defence Systems (constructing a power amplifier for a communications satellite), Blue Star Ship Management (as a navigating officer), Plessey Telecommunications (on System X, the digitization of the UK telephone system), and British Aerospace (testing the Tornado main computer and developing the requirements specification for the automation of the Tornado production line).

Expert has been continually engaged in research since 1985, having been awarded an MPhil in computing in 1992, an MSc (by research) in radio science in 2000, and a PhD in solar-terrestrial physics in 2007.

Expert is currently a Research Associate with the John Tyndall Nuclear Research Institute (JTI) at the Expert's University, as well as being a Visiting Research Fellow with the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (at the same institution). His current research primarily involves studies in computational fluid dynamics applied to the nuclear decommissioning industry, with some secondary studies in the effects of solar particle events on geospace.
