In addition to my professional work I have had a long-standing interest in the interactions of science and society, a concern first sparked by worries about the implications of nuclear weapons, but extending far beyond that subject. This is why I am, as I have been for many years, a Sponsor of Scientists for Global Responsibility.

I have long been a keen cyclist and walker. For many years I commuted regularly to Imperial College by bicycle (around 10 km), though now, when I no longer need to commute so regularly, I do a lot more walking than cycling, including leading walks for the local Ramblers group.

I enjoy gardening. My late wife, who died in 1005, was a very keen gardener and I was her assistant, describing myself as a 'destructive gardener' because my principal jobs were to cut things back or dig them out, as well as cutting the grass. Since her death I have tried to become more constructive, with limited success. I also enjoy being a grandfather. The photo was taken on a family holiday in Normandy in 2009.
