(A brief CV you find here and a list of scientific publications. . Most of these publications can be
found at and here with a targeted search. Top citations (for what it is worth..!) here)

'One publication I am particularly fond of: MEASUREMENT OF DEEP INELASTIC COMPTON SCATTERING
OF HIGH ENERGY PHOTONS, CERN/EP/85-07, 18 January 1985. Available here as pre-print,
the publication in Physics Letters is not Open Access... Co-authors Daniel Treille and Jim Virdee became
lifelong friends: they remained faithful to science whilst I strayed off into science management and
administration... The discovery of the Higgs boson was their share!'
