Background: After attending Oulder Hill Comprehensive School in Rochdale, studied Physics at Hertford College, Oxford. I began working on lasers with Dan Cassidy at McMaster Universtiy in Canada. During my Ph.D. with Allister Ferguson at Strathclyde, I designed and built one of the first single frequency Ti:sapphire lasers which subsequently become the Coherent MBR110. As a post-doc I worked with Juergen Mlynek in Konstanz and Steven Chu at Stanford before beginning my own research group at Durham in October 1995.
