Abstract Studied chemistry at Bristol University (BSc 1964) and physical chemistry at Leeds and Belfast Universities (PhD Leeds 1967) and then appointed to teach polymer chemistry at Leicester Polytechnic. Resigned in 1989 to work as a consultant but became a visiting fellow at Loughborough University and a visiting professor at De Montfort University (formerly Leicester Polytechnic). Awarded a DSc by Bristol University in 1994. For many years has been joint editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives.
