In 1947, on leaving school he joined a Research Establishment at Great Malvern doing basic research on radar. At Exeter University on leave of absence, he read Physics and graduated in 1955. In 1956, he took up a Fellowship at Imperial College, London, for research on the detection and intensification of medical X-ray images, gaining the DIC (Diploma of The Imperial College) and the PhD of London University. In 1959, he went into full-time school teaching as a physics master and also carried out research into the sodium spectrum of light from the sky at twilight.
In 1964, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at Salford University. He introduced the first UK Honours Degree Course in Biomedical Electronics. It was ‘accredited’ by the IEE. There have been 18 MSc and 19 PhD degrees awarded to his graduate students. At 1990 at the age of 60, he accepted an offer of premature retirement. He continues to be active in research and writing now at home.
With over 100 publications, there have been four main streams of research activity through his career: instrument technology, biomedical electronics, dielectric liquids, and electromagnetic effects in biological systems, bio-materials and water. From 1973 to 1991, co-operation with the late Professor Herbert Fröhlich FRS led to his studies of the interaction of coherent electromagnetic fields with living systems, biological materials and to coherence and fractal-like effects in water. In 1982, he became involved with the diagnosis and therapy of electromagnetically hypersensitive patients at the Breakspear Hospital in England and later at EHC – Dallas TX where he has given 14 presentations at the “Man & His Environment” Symposia.
