CV (Curriculum Vitae) / Résumé

I solve problems. Having to use brute force frustrates me: there is always a quicker and more elegant solution to a problem. Finding it is my job. Solving your problems elegantly and quickly saves you time and money.

I also communicate. I write clearly, elegantly and accurately. I inform and entertain.

I have excellent computer skills. MS Office as standard, with fluency in LaTeX and competence in Matlab, LabVIEW and Inkscape for document design and layout, graphical design and data crunching.

I have been part of the Chemistry department of Cambridge University for almost a decade, and am currently submitting my PhD thesis. I have copious experience in scientific writing, having published several papers in peer-reviewed journals, and written reports on my work for audiences on three continents.

My writing experience extends beyond the scientific world: I have had several magazine articles published over the years, largely on topics relating to Christian theology and the cultures of sub-Saharan Africa.

I also have a fluent command of French, and am particularly proficient at translating from French to English. I also know Koine Greek and can greet you in any one of several Bantu languages.
