I received a PhD in applied maths (fusion plasma kinetic theory) in 1996 from the Mathematics Institute of St Andrews University.

I am a menber of the Marie-Curie Alumni Assoc. I am working on the GloSAT project (www.glosat.org) in the Climatic Research Unit (www.cru.uea.ac.uk) in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia to estimate how the global climate has changed over the industrial era. My open source code is mostly at: github.com/patternizer.
