My decision was based on the fact that there were so many things that I wanted to do outside work that the only way I could find time to do them was to retire. After my time as the acting director of the Hartree Centre, I moved back to space activities at RAL between May and September 2016 and I retired in the middle of September 2016.

I am also catching up with some projects around the house that were “on hold” for far too long. I am still going to RAL one day per week (typically) since I have a position as an Honorary Scientist with STFC. This lets me “use the facilities” and I am working on a couple of astronomical research projects.
