Professor Charlton has published over one hundred research articles and written several reviews, notably for Reports on Progress in Physics and Physics Reports. John Watkin Humberston was an undergraduate at Manchester University and obtained his PhD from University College London. From 1965 to 1966 he taught at Trinity College Dublin and became a Lecturer at UCL in 1966, where he subsequently became Senior Lecturer and Reader. During this time he had sabbatical leave at the Goddard Space Flight Center, USA, and at York University, Toronto, Canada.
