Lecturer, n. One with his hand in your pocket, his tongue in your ear and his faith in your patience. (Ambrose Bierce, 1842-1914).
After an undergraduate degree in Liverpool, Robin studied for his D.Phil. in Oxford under the supervision of Raymond Dwek. Following a brief period of post-doctoral work in the same lab, he moved to Imperial College to work with Alan Fersht. Although Alan has long since moved to Cambridge, Robin has remained at Imperial ever since.
Originally from the Manchester area (and so with a legitimate reason to support the one and only football team, MUFC), Robin now lives in rural Surrey (adding to the common perception that this is where most United fans reside).
Robin is married with two children--for the obligatory family photos click on the link below....
