He taught engineering for the College but, before becoming Master his main College contribution was serving on the Governing Body and its committees.
He was the first holder of the Rank Chair of engineering established in 1972 in the field of Acoustics, coming to Cambridge from Imperial College London, where he held the Rolls-Royce Chair in theoretical Acoustics.
