About the serial-volume-editor

Philip Hoggan

Philip Hoggan is from Aberyswyth. He was admitted to Trinity College, Cambridge after the entrance exam in 1978. He graduated in 1983 in Natural Sciences (Theoretical chemistry) then went to France for a year’s post-graduate study but has not returned to live in the UK since. He was appointed lecturer at Caen in 1992 and researched with a catalysis CNRS team until 1998 when he was given a professorship in Clermont Ferrand. PH is also visiting professor of theoretical physics at FAMU, Tallahassee, Florida, which was cemented by stays totaling over a year in 2003 and 2004 as well as other shorter visits. Since then, research in France has been re-structured into large Institutes, so PH has been attached to a Surface Physics research team since 2005 in the large Physics institute called ‘Institut Pascal’ or UMR CNRS 6602. PH is married to a leading biochemist and they have twin daughters. Extra-curricular interests include rugby (PH played for 30 years starting age 11), theatre (PH acted, mostly whilst a student in English, French and Russian language productions) and archeology (mostly bronze-age in a broad sense).
