Present Objective

 

 

 

 

 

Seeking employment or consultancy in any of:  the writing/ authoring, educational, fundamental research, analytical and/or R&D fields to bring mutual employer/employee kudos.   I also wish that via such employment I can bring as many benefits to my fellow human kind as possible.   Part -time considered if working from home or in local area.    

 

Summary

 

 

 

Educated to Doctoral level, a multi-skilled, multi-talented, immensely creative and perceptive lateral thinker/writer. Bringer of tremendous and manifold scientific foresight and numerous new and novel ideas.  A highly adaptive, Interdisciplinary Scientist, Electronics Engineer, Author, Communicator, Inventor, Patent Writer, Examiner and Educator with some thirty plus years’ experience .  A rare and indeed perhaps almost unique combination.   Heading up the Chemistry department in an Independent School   and in parallel   running a Private Consultancy and a small Tutoring Organization.   Author of some forty peer reviewed publications and well over a hundred internet self-publications and some fifty or so patents and patent applications. Academic and Private Research work has spanned the very diverse, yet sometimes inter-related fields of Electrostatics, Dielectrics, Acoustics, Ultrasonics, Industrial and Bio-sensing, Earth and Atmospheric Science and Cancer Epidemiology.   Patent and patent applications also cover most of these fields and provide various energy industry, medical and other solutions. Also a prolific, creative writer and amateur poet.  Usefully, I have well over a thousand ‘LinkedIn’ contacts, many at high Academic and Governmental Departmental Level.
