After going to school in Ysgol y Bryn, Cwmllynfell and Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera, Swansea I took my first degree at Imperial College in 1989. I then moved to the Clarendon Laboratory Oxford University and worked with Professor Paul Ewart, where I obtained my D.Phil in 1993. Before coming to the University of Durham I was a post-doctoral researcher for 4 years in the group of Professor Ed Hinds, briefly at Yale, mostly at Sussex University. I am a member of the SCR  at University College and for 13 years was a mentor/tutor.
