Sussex University Memories – MAPS in 1989

Posted in Biographical with tags , , on June 24, 2015 by telescoper

I was at a meeting this afternoon doing some planning for a nice event coming up next month – of which more anon – when I was reminded of this photograph, taken one sunny day on the University of Sussex campus way back in 1989. It shows staff of the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences which was MAPS, acronymically speaking, in those days; now it is MPS. The picture is taken from a very interesting website of the history of physics at Sussex.

I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Astronomy Centre in those days. I wonder who can spot me in the picture?
