One of the first students at Sussex, John also studied in Cambridge and has worked on the journals Nature and New Scientist. From 1975 to 1978 he was a member of the Science Policy Research Unit. He now writes books about science, and is best known for In Searchh of Schrodnger's Cat. His latest book, Computing With Quantum Cats, provides the background to work on quantum computing, in which Sussex is a world leader.
John Gribbin is a Visiting Fellow in astronomy and has taught the course Our Place in the Cosmos. He writes books for a living.
Almost anything scientific, but especially quantum physics, extragalactic astronomy, and evolution. These are, though, "only" interests; I am no longer actively involved in any research.
