I am from Greece where I love to spend my summers; few other places (with the exception of Cyprus) are hot enough for me! I occasionally take pictures, but all the underwater photography in this site is my brother's, Yanni; I am nicking his photographs constantly. Below are some of my favourite photographs (that of Park De Wuurde, courtesy of Alec Phillips).


Here is a recent favourite quote, from The Human Stain: "You can't make a college without breaking eggheads"


Women know your limits: old but always relevant


Say yes to Rick Scott or "you cannot offend women more!"


And two people whose research I find very useful in making sense of the academic world

Michelle Ryan and David Dunning


Greek dappled light
A sunny October day in the Blean woods
Buzz, the happiest dog ever
Park De Wuurde
Greek rose
Nothing beats the Greek sea
