Problem is, there are voters around, watching.

Researchers have developed a way to imbue graphene with the pull of magnetism. Electronics of all kinds could benefit. http://ow.ly/HXuHO

WiFi Placement

A Physics PhD student with too much time on their hands tries to decide where in the flat (apartment) to place their WiFi router and starts with the Helmholtz equation – but one thing leads to another!

Now it’s all very well and good to chat about this so glibly, because we’re all physicists and 90% of the time we’re rationalising away difficult-to-do things as ‘obvious’ or ‘trivial’ to avoid doing any work. Unfortunately for me the point of this blog is to do lots of work in my spare time while avoiding doing anything actually useful, so lets see if we can’t have a go at the time-dependent problem. Once we start reintroducing d/ dt‘s into the Helmholtz equation it’s actually not an approximation at all any more and we’re back to solving the full set of Maxwell’s equations.

Story
Tagline
I train people in Bioinformatics and I provide support services.
Introduction
I studied Electronics and Telecommunications Enginering but got attracted by Biology and Computer Science. In the early 1990s I started to create Bioinformatics resources for scientists, at a time where access to computing services and  data was a ajor obstacle, Gradually I understood that the major obstacle is training and so I developed GTPB to regularly provide affordable access to learning by direct transfer of skills in short, intensive, hands-on courses.
