Physics Projects 'n Stuff
Home Research Blog Consult Downloads About

This site is becoming confused with stuff about my school science projects, post-doc research, gem cutting etc. I have registered a new domain schoolphysicsprojects.org and will shift all the school/amateur physics projects to there, leaving this site for post-doc, personal and commercial work.

Hi .. this site exists primarily to illustrate some of my projects in pre-university physics, geophysics and computing as well as my current research interests. School science projects are in the 'STEM Projects' section above with occasional updates in the 'Blog' section.
