MY PUBLICATIONS

Academic outputs are more than just about the papers you publish, although they obviously are a key element! Here I've included contributions that are more research orientated, otherwise check out my Activities for other projects I'm involved in. I also have research profiles on the following platforms, where my publications, peer reviews and other material are recorded:
