Scientific publications

Up to date as of 3 July 2017. For the full text of items not available for download here, or hardcopy versions, please contact me. For estimated citation indexes and links to citing papers, please consult my Google Scholar profile, and for broader impacts of my peer-reviewed research, see my Impactstory profile; I also maintain a profile on Mendeley. Because I consider public outreach an important part of doing science, I frequently discuss my own projects on popular websites to which I contribute. Links to relevant online articles follow the listings for papers I’ve covered in that format.
