James Whitby

James Whitby originally trained as a chemist in the UK but has since spent longer working in disguise as a physicist. For most of this time he has used mass spectroscopic techniques to measure elemental isotope ratios in extraterrestrial material, but he occasionally dabbles in optical spectroscopy. His biggest (only) claim to fame is to have been awarded a Guinness Book of Records certificate for radiometrically dating the Universe’s oldest water. He currently lives in Switzerland where the beautiful scenery compensates for the lack of English beer and deep fried food.

James contributes to The Spectroscopy Net web-sites as part of his acitivities within in the European projects EMDPA and Gladnet.
