About me

Thunder and lightning have been lifelong passions ever since I was very young.  I hope to devote my working life to the pursuit of understanding these phenomena scientifically.  Every choice in my education and early career has had this aim in mind—from which subjects to study at GCSE, right through to post-doc.  I’m now a qualified physicist and it’s my intention to try and follow a career path which allows me to scientifically research my love of lightning. After graduating with a degree in Physics, I was lucky to land a PhD in the subject of thunderstorm electrification (why thunderclouds get charged up) and this was my first real experience of lightning research.  And I loved it (see the account of my PhD).  I've been really privileged to have had a number of post-doc positions since then in other areas directly associated with lightning which have broadened my knowledge.  My longer term goals are to try and establish a lightning research group at a UK university and work with all my colleagues around the world to further our knowledge of the field.
