We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives. Technical information about this website’s accessibility This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the known issues listed below.

Non accessible content

Some documents and content are exempt from the regulations (such as live video content and PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services), so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible. But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format. An assessment has taken place in accordance with Imperial’s accessibility guidance that assesses that making a particular part of the website accessible is a disproportionate burden, as this is a website maintained in spare time by a single academic will many other full time commitments. However, if there is anything that is not accessible, please get in touch and I will endeavour to help.

Reporting accessibility issues

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille or if you find any accessibility issues not listed on this page then please contact We’ll consider your request and get back to you within one month.

Enforcement procedure

If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
