I am a solicitor specialising in charity law and governance.
I am one of the founder members of UKRAA and came to radio astronomy from optical astronomy, driven by an interest in electronics and making things.
I like to think ‘outside of the box’ and enjoy solving problems. I hold UK and US amateur radio licences (M0LUT and K2LUT).
Electronic engineer, now working in the design of security systems.
Astronomy interests, a desire to understand the processes, with a wish to build and adapt equipment to suit observing requirements
Other interests include, Hill walking and Scouting.
I am now retired form a career in scientific instruments having worked for a major Japanese company for 40 years. I am now returning to my roots in electronics and software. Radio Astronomy is a great fit for these roots.
My main interest is corelating observational data streams from different Radio Astronomical observations.
I'm also the BAA Radio Astronomy Section Director.
My long standing interest in astronomy was re-energised when I discovered amateur radio astronomy.
I enjoy building the instruments needed for making observations, currently VLF, magnetrometry and occasionally meteors.
I spent 28 years in Primary Education with the majority of this time as a Deputy Headteacher. I then moved to Stansted Airport working in several departments.
