Here you will find a short selection of my presentations.  If you access a presentation, please consider the following points:

  • Although powerpoint is a useful tool, much of the narrative of a presentation can be lost in a series of slides.
  • If you use anything from a presentation, then please remember to cite what you use.  It is disappointing that many academics and commentators are careful to cite published papers but feel free to take ideas from presentations and talks without any attribution what so ever.
