... with a local primary school
Since the mid 1980s (when my children began school) I have acted as ‘Foster Physicist’ for my local Infant & Junior School:
Lady Bay Infant & Junior School
My wife, Nicki, is a Teaching Assistant, at the School and also provides PPA cover with special responsibility for science. We have delivered the following talks during annual ‘Science Week’ and other occasions. These consisted of interactive 45 minute presentations together with the development and use of associated worksheets:
- The Digital World March 2002
- Remote Monitoring in the Antarctic March 2003
- The Circulatory System and Sickle Cell Disease March 2007
- Communications March 2011
- The Colourful World December 2011
Both of us are interested in further exploring activities in this area. and would welcome collaboration

... with a performance artist
We have been engaged with a local, internationally recognised, artist, Hetain Patel, in work that links Hetain’s dance and art to our research in physiological monitoring and biomedical signal processing.
The intention is to use the body’s natural rhythms as inspiration for art works - or monitor the audience's physiological activities and use these as part of the performance.
