I obtained my PhD from the University of Glasgow (UK) in Aeronautics and have extensive teaching experience at university level. I am passionate about writing and have authored numerous scientific articles and books. My research interests include the aerodynamics of sports balls and improving science education. I am a keen sports fan, stargazer and popular science writer, having authored books on the physics of sports, astronomy, and textbooks for aerospace engineering. My book, "An Introduction to the Physics of Sports", has been used as a recommended text for various university courses.
