Sky & Telescope

I had wondered about the end to a story I was told at university about one of my professors running a simulation of the universe for years.

BBC Sky at Night

After reading an interesting journal article about how Hubble and the new Webb telescope might be used for live stereoscopic viewing, I wrote a piece for BBC Sky at Night to highlight the Webb’s capabilities in seeing Solar System objects. I have latterly had the privilege of writing several pieces for the magazine’s Voyager special issue, as well as news and feature articles. View article

Among further features is a piece on redesigning the humble brick to produce electricity, and clean water and air. View article

My first article for E&T, the IET’s award-winning monthly magazine for professional engineers, explored the emerging discipline of materials informatics. I have since written on free-space optical security and encryption, and the challenges facing quantum computing. View article

Technologist Magazine

Working with LargeNetwork, I have been involved with Technologist magazine, which brings together the best and most exciting research and innovation from Europe and beyond, since issue 8. Every time the topic is different, from transhumanism to resurrecting extinct puppies. I also had the honour of writing the Last Word in the magazine’s final print issue 15. View articles
