I strongly believe that if you ask people to take part in research you are subsequently obliged to disseminate the findings of that research. The effort and time that this can take is substantial, and all to often researchers stop at conference posters or oral presentations. These reach a limited audience and have very little… Continue reading The Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Quality Of Life in Maxillofacial Patients with Type III Osteoradionecrosis
A number of years ago, when I was the Business Manager for Futurelab Education, we looked at a couple of projects around technology in social housing and how internet access could transform lives. I began talking to George Grant (Founder, Housing Technology) about several projects across Bristol that were refurbishing PCs and providing them to… Continue reading How smart are your houses?

That is the case… Continue reading Publications – Just like buses!
