Scientific Ancestry:

We are in the legendary Peter Cole lineage. My PhD advisor was Kamran Eshraghian. His PhD advisor was Peter H. Cole. His PhD advisor was Ron E. Aitchison (then at Univ. Sydney, and moved to Macquarie Univ.).

All my postgraduates are "great grandchildren" of Peter Cole and "great great grandchildren" of Ron Aitchison.

We are also in the legendary lineage of Bruce R. Davis as he was my PhD co-advisor. His PhD advisor was the legendary Eric O. Willoughby.

All my postgraduates are "great grandchildren" of Eric Willoughby.
