I was successively an undergraduate, postgraduate and research fellow at Magdalen College Oxford from 1972 to 1981, first as a Demy and subsequently as a graduate student (supervised by Ray Freeman) and as a Fellow by Examination. In 1978-9 I spent a year's leave of absence with Laurie Hall at the University of British Columbia as an Izaak Walton Killam postdoctoral fellow. In 1982 I moved to Manchester, where I am now Professor of Physical Chemistry. I was awarded the RSC Corday-Morgan prize and medal in 1988, a Leverhulme Fellowship in 1996, and the RSC Industrially-Sponsored Award in Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in 2001. In 2014 I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.
