Here is a CV, and publication list.

I'm lucky in that I enjoy what I do.  In addition to directing the X-Ray Facility and service crystallography projects at UK, I have many other interests. I teach a course in crystallography for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and have taught the Physical Chemistry laboratory course.

My Erdös number is 4.

I have written a few programs and scripts to help with crystallographic work. All source code is freely available here.
