The author is a British born scientist from Turkish parentage. After receiving his B.Sc (Hons) in chemistry from Queen Mary College, London University, he stayed on to earn a Ph.D in the organic synthesis of unstable carotenoid pigments before moving to Oxford and Nottingham Universities to carry out postdoctoral research in other areas of chemistry. He then found long term employment as a pharmaceutical development chemist which led to him being named inventor and co-inventor of numerous patents awarded for commercially important processes. The author's early interest in astronomy indirectly led to his curiosity into the UFO phenomenon, and once he became adept in chemistry he was keen to use his expertise to uncover knowledge on the phenomenon if at all possible. This book is the result of that endeavour.
