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, textbooks for aerospace engineering and guidebooks to scientific sites. My book, "An Introduction to the Physics of Sports", has been used as a recommended text for various university courses and my guidebook on the scientific sites of Athens has received positive reviews in the press.
