Jack Deighton: A Potted Biography

Jack Deighton studied Chemistry at Glasgow University, then took a PhD (carbon-13 NMR substituent effects). He worked for two years in Hertfordshire studying the effects of additives on the processability of rubber, then moved back to Scotland and took up teaching. He has taught in Cowdenbeath and Dunfermline. Jack is married with two sons.

Note for those of you who speak aloud as you read:
You should pronounce "Deighton" to rhyme with "Brighton" and not with -- to take an example, not at random -- a certain town in Ohio. "Jack" should rhyme with, well, "Jack"...
