Professor Stephen Britland's Inaugural Lecture- The perennial 'could do better' boy did, eventually. Some musings around my educational journey so far.

About us

The internet quoted Mark Twain as saying "I never let Schooling interfere with my education". Following in the same vein I will elaborate on the trials presented by my formative School years before recounting my non-seamless transition into higher education. I'll then review some tribulations of being an undergraduate student before my rather sudden metamorphosis into an academic who did subsequently make occasional original contributions to scientific knowledge and who is proud when ex-students and colleagues say "oh yes, I remember when you ------". I'll finish by offering one or two thoughts on the process of becoming a Professor and a personal perspective on what the role should entail.
