I work extensively with industry, as a consultant and as a provider of contract research, through
the Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership.
Current partners include Mars, Johnson Matthey and AkzoNobel.

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.
