*I have been external examiner for 30 PhD theses

*Potential / Future PhD applicants:

There is much competition for, and a finite amount of, my time. If you want to be supervised by me you will need to develop a research proposal close to one of my areas of interest . Enquiries should be made to via an initial research proposal that meet the guidelines on the  City web pages. Additionally, I have an upper limit of 6-7 PhD (full time equivalent) students at any one time.
