Dave Jago studied chemistry at Imperial College, and although he hasn't worked formally in science for years it's a mindset he believes 'you don't grow out of'. Dave Jago still considers himself a scientist. After a couple of years of postgrad research (studying the kinetics of tea infusion and catalysis of solvolysis reactions), he moved into publishing, and is currently Director of Publications and Website at the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
He is also a semi-pro trombonist, playing with the Bollywood Brass Band and a variety of jazz line-ups. Dave is also a Director of the Publishers Licensing Society and the Copyright Licensing Agency.
