The atmosphere in college is very friendly,
it's almost like a family.

I came to Emmanuel in 1984 to read Mathematics, and have been here in various guises ever since.
After graduating from Oxford in 1964, I joined the research group of Luis Alvarez at the University of California, Berkeley, where I obtained a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics in 1969. That was a time of great excitement, with discoveries coming thick and fast. I studied the new phenomenon of CP (charge-conjugation times parity) violation in neutral K mesons, using the bubble-chamber technique for which Alvarez was awarded the 1968 Nobel Prize.
Early-modern Japan (1600-1867) witnessed the production of a vast amount of texts, both handwritten and commercially printed by means of woodblocks. These materials are the key to unlock a variety of disciplines when studying early-modern Japan, and yet they present multiple challenges.
