I am a retired University lecturer in the UK. My education was primarily in Physics and I taught electronics for some 40 years - a time of great change and innovation. Much of my work in that time was in design and engineering solutions for both my own Physics department and the Electronics department of Salford University, Manchester, UK. Interests, outside of making the best of my (very) hard earned cash, are my family (wife Nitaya and son Matthew), my friends, quality education for all, not just the elite or those in the developed world, and doing what I can to help all life on this planet. I'm not an out-and-out "greenie" but I know good tech when I see it!
