Tim Paul Sherratt has had a long involvement with the history and archives of Australian science and technology. In 2005 he was awarded a PhD for his work on 'Atomic Wonderland' which, in his words, reflects 'a continuing battle with the meaning of progress, the involvement of science and the nature of the atomic age'. Tim was a key staff member of the Australian Science Archives Project and was one of the prime movers that led to the development of ASAP's web presence, in particular Bright Sparcs.
