Gerry also has a range of interests across the sciences, particularly in Neuroscience, Psychology, Artificial Intelligence and the Mathematics of Biology. Gerry also writes music and fiction, particularly Science Fiction and Cosmic Horror.

In his time at Glasgow Science Centre and in everyday life, Gerry has spoken to many people who’ve expressed an interest in science but feel they lack the ability or opportunity to take that interest further.

​Gerry is an undergraduate at The Open University, studying Physics and Mathematics, with the aim to progress to a Masters followed by a PhD in Theoretical Physics/ Applied Mathematics. He also volunteers in Evaluation Research at Glasgow Science Centre, communicating regularly with visitors about the material and working to improve their overall experience. Gerry is also a member of my local Astronomy society. He has 8 Standard Grades and 5 Highers in Physics, Mathematics, Music, RMPS and English.
