I could ramble on about the joys of Shepley, times spent in the tree house with Claire and Ursula, sixth form parties with the old gang (many of whom I'm still in touch with) and good times with the rather large family I have around Holmfirth.
Shepley was home till 1993 (well it is always going to be home) when I moved to Cambridge to do my undergrad degree in maths (hard) and astrophysics (great). Good times were spent with the girls - Mary, Nikki and Becky and Christ's lads - Comp and Jethro plus the Part II astronomers. Here's a recent photo taken at Mary's house Christmas 2001.
Then I got sick of studying so disappeared to Australia for 6 months to work with ATCV and other volunteer organisations which was really cool. I'll scan some of these photos in here - some are quite interesting!
After a year off my brain felt it could cope with more astrophysics so I did a PhD at the University of Durham. That was great fun, Durham is a lovely place and the people there were on the whole excellent (in many ways). Three years really did fly by. Some of the photos are of Durham people.
The PhD didn't put me off academia so I moved to Philadelphia, USA to do a post doc in more astrophysics stuff. I've recently found out I can stay here for up to 6 more years so I may be here for a while. Good job I like it. That might have something to do with the new love of my life - dancing! Well a certain Ecuadorian now gets to take some of the credit.
And I have just accepted a faculty position at a university just outside Philadelphia, Widener University, so I'll be in the area for quite a while it seems.
