My undergraduate and postgraduate studies were at Imperial College London. I then had postdoc positions in the Theory Group of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and at Carnegie-Mellon University. I arrived in Durham as a lecturer in 1984. My research interests over the years have largely concerned the theory of strong interactions, QCD. In my Ph.D. thesis I calculated the cross-section for production of three jet events in hadronic collisions, and there are a number of papers on disentangling different hard subprocesses at collider events, and on multijet production. A more recent area of interest has been the large-order behaviour of perturbation theory and how to perform all-orders resummations using techniques based on so-called renormalons. The problem of renormalization scheme dependence in fixed- order perturbative QCD predictions, and how to avoid it, has also been a major research theme. As a sideline I also have an interest in Supersymmetric (SUSY) Quantum Mechanics, and in particular translationallly shape invariant potentials.
