Me in a nutshell (Detailed CV)

I trained in physics & theoretical physics at Cambridge University, where I stayed to study for a PhD in mineral physics at the Cavendish Laboratory. After a year at Portsmouth Polytechnic, I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, where I hold a person chair in Condensed Matter Physics. I was elected FRSE in 2004, and hold a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award. Much of my current work is funded by a Programme Grant from the UK's EPSRC and an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council.
I also teach and research the relationship between science and Christian belief at New College, Edinburgh, serve on the Liturgy Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church, and hold a grant from Scientists in Congregations, Scotland.
