A brief CV you find here and a list of scientific publications. Most of these publications can be found at inspirehep.net and here with a targeted search (with a few entries of persons with the same name). Top citations (for what it is worth..!)   here Here a list of former Ph.D. students and their current whereabouts, send me updates :)

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!

Current activities include: member Supervisory Board Waddenacademie
Member RvC Matrix Innovation Center
'Third' member of the Executive Board of NeCEN The Netherlands Centre for Electron Nanoscopy
Associate editor for European Physical Journal EPJ C

Temporary topical special subject:

On ultra-dense hydrogen as a medium for 'spontaneous' appearance of antiprotons and their subsequent annihilation. To be clear: my indignation does not apply to the person(s) who wrote these articles but to those who published them in the peer reviewed scientific literature. They should retract this nonsense. They have no mechanism for this, they say...
