I'm a PhD student at the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation at the University of Southampton, UK studying complexity in Remote Sensing.

As part of my work I am heavily involved in Remote Sensing and GIS technologies - particularly ENVI/IDL programming and ArcGIS scripting using Python.

My academic website shows some examples of my work, and links to some of the software I have written.

comment Use \newcommand with a variable inside a style file
Thanks - that works well :-) The only problem I have is that I then want to use \modulecode in a bit of fancyhdr code as below. This code is inside my style file, but is failing - presumably because it can't see \modulecode at the time that it is run (as it is defined in the preamble of the document). Is there a way around this: \fancyhead{} \lhead{\modulecode} \rhead{\lecturetitle}

comment Use \newcommand with a variable inside a style file
I've had a look at that, but I'm not sure exactly what I need to look for. I could do this by passing a parameter to a package, but I can't see how to do that with passing strings rather than just options. What I was actually thinking of was creating a command (using \newcommand possibly) in the style file that would allow me to do something like \setmodulecode{COMP6023} in my document. That would seem to me to be the easiest way - and I'd guess it is fairly simple. Is that so?

comment Change ordering of initials in biblatex style
Only to the names I think. The rest of the style looks perfect for what I want - it's just the ordering of the names and initials that are the problem.

comment BibTex error when fields have {'s around them
Sorry about this guys. I've just got back to this problem and found that if I reduce the bibtex file to just this entry it works fine. I've now built my BibTeX file up again, and it now works fine. I think it was the strange bits that BibDesk was putting at the end of my file to say what references where in what categories that was causing problems.
