Bio: 

Bill has recently been awarded a professorship at Hezhou University in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China. He teaches in both the English and Science departments and will collaborate with the Linguistics department in their field research into the dialects of Guangxi, and of the Hezhou region in particular.

Following his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Galway, Ireland, he lectured and carried out research at Imperial College, London. He then moved into archaeology and established a geophysical laboratory and archaeomagnetic dating facility at the Museum of London. He set up similar facilities at a university in Romania during his extensive archaeological research work across Europe.

Bill also writes in his spare time. He has published a book on the Blue Plaques of London and is currently writing a crime novel that hopes to combine the Western and Chinese traditions of this genre.

Bill has lived in China for almost eight years and owns his own property there, which he shares with his (growing) library of more than 3,000 books.
