# Physics

### MA & MSci 1998 - 2002

My first degree(s) in Natural Sciences at Queens' College, University of Cambridge in Great
Britain. I studied Experimental and Theoretical
Physics at Cavendish
Laboratory (aka the Department of Physics). During the final two
years I focused on theoretical and computational fields.

### Undergraduate projects

Entropy of polymer chains by the method
of cellular automata - third year computational project

Macroscopic Quantum Coherence - third year literature
review of recent advances towards quantum computation

Alignment of MWPCs: simulation and
calibration software for the HARP experiment at CERN, summer 2001

Levitation by electromagnetic ion
confinement - fourth year theoretical project, basically my Master's thesis

### Published inventions

Method and apparatus for defining the delamination strength of paper material or the like, from a summer project in 2000

### Lateral interests

Geometric Algebra
is a powerful mathematical toolkit. It unifies different concepts
(notably complex analysis and vector algebra) into a computationally
efficient and intuitive view of physics in *n* dimensions. I have
written a Finnish introduction into the subject.

Alternative theories of gravity and space/time, including The Dynamic
Universe. There's also a Gauge Theory of Gravity, some links are
at the Geometric Algebra site.
