A number of people ask me from time to time for photos, videos and publications from my research that are difficult to find simply by Googling. So I decided to create a digital place that archives my research. It is still very much work in progress but is gradually getting populated with more content. The site has evolved from my former website at the Open University and before that Indiana University. The artwork in the banners is from a painting I did when I was about 13 years old. I was influenced at the time by the artist Yves Tanguy. The photo of me was taken in 2003 in the window of my office when I first arrived at IU in Bloomington, Indiana.
