I'm a retired chemist with 36 years of technical and professional experience acquired from extensive periods in drug discovery, development projects and outsourcing programmes - exclusively within GlaxoSmithKline.

As a school Governor and Secretary of the RSC Downland Local Section I'm helping young people to get switched on to science and chemistry in particular. I have recently completed the ChemNet and STEM Ambassador programmes to help facailiate this.
