I have had an abiding interest in how things work and how they can be effectively improved. In particular, understanding the technology behind devices and how that technology could be adapted or enhanced. I enjoy the challenge of using scientific and mathematical methods when solving common problems and finding ingenious solutions to ‘wicked’ problems.
