Kevin believes science and technology are more interesting when seen in the context of everyday experience. Through science, we make sense of the world around us. Through technology, we enrich our lives. Before we can understand a new development's impact, we must be able to see it in our minds' eyes.
Kevin Cudby helps readers visualise the impact of technological innovations. He describes them in everyday language; he writes engaging stories about their impact; he shows how they help meet the challenges of everyday life; he illustrates how they affect our future. Kevin's writing skills emerged from a fifteen-year career as an electronics design and manufacturing engineer. To enhance his ability to communicate about science and technology, he completed a degree in Strategic Communication in the late 1990s. He then spent two years at Industrial Research Limited, where he managed and edited an extensive internal web site (more than 300 pages) and regularly contributed to the company's internal magazine. As well as his regular magazine features and corporate work, Kevin has written about diverse subjects including materials physics, biochemistry, ornithology, taxation, renewable crude oil, advanced transport technology, robotics, parametric 3D modelling, and computational fluid dynamics.
A keen salt-water angler and sailing instructor, he is deeply concerned about human impacts on the global environment. He is especially interested in how science and technology create opportunities to mitigate the environmental effects of human activity.
