Phil Barker

Still at ICBL, Heriot-Watt University.
Email: philb@icbl.hw.ac.uk

Currently Phil splits his time between LTDI, INSIDE and the TLTP3 EASEIT-Eng project, working on the LTDI web site and information services, and helping implement and evaluate CAL in Engineering and a wide range of other subjects.

Phil studied physics at Bristol, before doing a PhD and three years of research on polymer crystallization in the polymer physics group there. He then did one more year of research in that area at the CSIC in Madrid. While at Bristol, he was normally to be found trying out to figure out what had gone wrong with one of the group's computers, or trying to explain some interesting (he thought) physics to someone who may or may not have wanted to know. On returning from Spain he saw a job advertised at the CTI Centre for Physics which involved showing how computers can be used to explain physics, and he hasn't looked back since.

Phil joined LTDI in September 1996 on a six month secondment as Implementation Support Consultant in Physics, Chemistry and the Physical Sciences in general. After this he went back to CTI-Physics Guildford but couldn't stay away for long: when LTDI got it's fourth year of funding he came back to Edinburgh.
