On completing my PhD I returned to Australia to a postdoctoral position at Macquarie University working with Alan McIntosh. In 1989 I was lured to the other side of Sydney to take up a lectureship at UNSW.

Since arriving at UNSW, I have got married to Jacqueline, been promoted, and have passed my eyes across more first year papers than I care to remember! Our family is now up to 6 with the arrivals of Joshua (1997), Matthew (2000), Shane (2003) and Leah (2007...spoiling the arithmetic progression).

Many of my publications are available on-line.
