Awarded by President of Poland the National Medal of Polish Education for services to the Oxford Colleges Hospitality Scheme for Polish Scholars in 1992.
Awarded the Czochralski Medal by the European Materials Research Society in 2012.
Spriggs Award of the American Ceramic Society 2015.
Vice President of the International Union of Crystallography 2014-2017.
President of the British Crystallographic Association 1996-2000.
I retired officially in 2010 but continue to engage in research and some teaching for Oxford Colleges and the Department of Physics. I am Emeritus Fellow of Jesus College Oxford.
In 1972 I derived a system (Acta Cryst. (1972). B28, 3384-3392) to describe the tilting of octahedra in perovskites, and this work is now recognised internationally. 3D printed models can be downloaded here 3dPrinting (amg122.com).
In 1986 I set up with J. Cosier a partnership, Oxford Cryosystems, to market low-temperature apparatus for crystallographers. This product is the market lead and Oxford Cryosystems | Oxford Cryosystems (oxcryo.com) is the world's almost exclusive manufacturer of such equipment.
I am currently General Editor of the International Newsletter of the International Union of Crystallography ((IUCr) Newsletter)

Much of my time is now spent in bringing the subject of Crystallography to public attention, as it is relatively unknown. Here are some relevant examples:
