I'm active in both Physics and Networking & Multimedia. In the Physics Division
it's all sorts of things from first year general physics and labs (hence the material
in the experiment menu ) to lasers (physics,
engineering and applications) and project supervision in the final year. I also
in Linux/Apache for Perl, PHP, MySQL applications so I supervise honours projects
in these areas.
Nuclear physics, optical instrumentation.
Normally I teach here in Paisley, but I visited the Fachbereich
Elektrotechnik at the HTWK-Leipzig
to discuss our popular student exchange programmes for academic study,
work placements and projects. The HTWK-Leipzig students have enthusiastically
taken up the opportunity to study and live in Scotland and we are proud
of their achievements here.
In Leipzig I presented a short series of lectures and I think this was
an interesting and useful experience of technical English for the students.
On a more personal level, I very much enjoyed meeting the staff and students
at the HTWK-Leipzig, living in such a lively city and travelling in Saxony.
It was also a great chance for me to practice my German!
Learning German at the Goethe-Insitut
in Glasgow, winter walking (Scottish Avalanche
Information Service) and rock climbing (leading 6a/6b indoors or short VS
and multi-pitch VD outside).
