Biography

I am now fully retired, although still scientifically active. My Fellowship in 1970 was in the field of radioactive waste management, its purpose being to study practices in the United States and Canada. I visited almost all of the nuclear power stations, both operational and under construction, as well as most of the government research laboratories, learning a great deal but in turn giving lectures and seminars describing the UK nuclear power industry. At that time I was head of the Health Physics Department (radiation safety) at Dungeness nuclear power station in Kent. I retired in 1990 as corporate Health Physics Services Manager for the UK commercial nuclear power industry and established Nuclear Technology Publishing, specialising in radiation protection journals and books. This was purchased by Oxford University Press in 2004. The main journal, Radiation Protection Dosimetry, celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2020 and was, and still is, the leading journal in the world in its field. My Fellowship gave me great self-confidence, which led both directly and indirectly to enhancing my career. I am proud to have sponsored Fellowships in 1990 and in 2020 and onwards each year during my lifetime.
