More About the Author

Russell Stannard is a prolific author of award-winning books for children and for adults. His Uncle Albert books have been translated into 20 languages, and one of them, 'Uncle Albert and the Quantum Quest' was for a time the Number 1 UK paperback bestseller.
For his work in making science accessible to children and to the public in general, he was awarded an OBE by The Queen, and has received the Bragg Medal of the Institute of Physics.
He was involved in setting up the UK's Open University (the UK's largest university with over 250,000 students) where he headed the Department of Physics and Astronomy for 21 years.
His research field was high energy physics, which he conducted at the CERN laboratory in Geneva and in major US laboratories.
Besides his scientific work, he is a licensed lay minister in the Anglican Church, and a Member of the Center for Theological Inquiry at Princeton, USA. Several of his books address the question as to how to reconcile science and religion.
He is also a sculptor in his spare time, his work in this area being the subject of a BBC TV documentary.
He has 16 grandchildren, and one great grandchild - so far.
