Launch of My New Website1st January 2011
Today sees the launch of a major website redesign. Visually, it might not look like much of a change, but a lot has changed under the bonnet.

- 'News and Impact': a page that contains information on major developments in my research, and specifically some of the ways that this research has had an impact outside of the lab!
- 'Research Team': a page containing information on my current (and past) team of researchers, PhD students, and intern students. This page also gives information on how to join the team!
- 'Research': my research page(s) have finally seen a complete overhaul to bring the up-to-date with my research over the past couple of years. Hopefully I'll do a better job of maintaining this from now on!
