Most people seem to find my surname difficult to pronounce. It is for their benefit that I have created this page.


My short story Entscheidungsproblem is published as part of the Take Tea with Turing anthology. It is an interactive app for iOS, android and kindle (I have created the last two).

(if you don't have an iOS/android device you can read it or --for the more adventurous-- listen to a dramatisation)


This is what happens when academics get out in the real world. (From my olive-oil harvesting of 2009, in one of the family's groves)


Like most things nowadays I do my LaTeX-ing (including my entire thesis) in the cloud. I tried lots of different platforms and I think Overleaf and ShareLaTeX are two of the best. Overleaf has the advantage of unlimited authors and git support at the free tier, but ShareLaTeX is more mature and has a better PDF rendering engine.


When I'm not solving all of language, I enjoy listening to* and spreading the scientific word!
I was the producer and a correspondent of the Edinburgh University Science Podcast
