book cover for Writing for Biomedical Sciences StudentsMy books, research publications and national press writings have covered a wide range.

I have been an author on over 70 peer-reviewed academic publications, on topics as diverse as trustworthiness, computer interaction, drug safety, the heart, motion capture, and non-verbal behaviour.  These are driven by my scientific interests, which seem to expand daily.

book cover for You Are What You HearI have written two books for the trade press, and I am busy editing another one on Technology in Biomedical and Life Sciences Education for the American Physiological Society/Springer.  My style is a mixture of authoritative and engaging. Some people claim that although my books are on serious topics, they occasionally venture in humor – if so, this is purely accidental.


My short writings and journalism have ranged from a column on body language for Total Politics magazine, scientific commentary on recent news stories, such as the scientists who announced they had discovered the ten most annoying noises in the UK, and study guides for students on the body and physiology.  For information about the confidential scientific reports I write for clients, see my consulting page.
