I obtained a BSc and PhD in physics from the University of Leeds. I was first employed at Philips Research Laboratories in Redhill and spent a year seconded to AERA at Harwell working on ion implanatation doping of Si. This led to a period as a resident visitor at Bell Labs at Murray Hill, New Jersey, working on Rutherford Scattering and solid phase epitaxial regrowth in Si. On returning to Philips I worked on GaAs heterostructures growth by moleclar beam epitaxy which led to a research programme on quantum well lasers. I moved to Cardiff in 1990 to establish a research activity on the physics of optoelectronic devices.
