It is a great honour to have been elected a Member of Council. I joined the IoP when a graduate student and I have been closely involved ever since. I was elected Fellow in 2004 and served as Chair of the Particle Accelerators and Beams Group between 2012 and 2016. It will be a privilege to help advise and steer the Institute as a Member of Council.
