looks good to me, the site has very nice and lite code too

two suggestions:

move the  body section up so the gap at the top is maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what it is now, users are uses to starting at the top of the page, not at the middle/

also just one minor thing make the web site link in the "reach me" page actually a link. I don't want to have to copy and paste that into my adress bar.

great site

Viewed with Firefox.  When the user increases text size, the content explodes outside the box and is partly blocked by the footer.  I assume that's a result of some absolute positionning. Whatever the cause, it needs to be adjusted to allow text of any size to fit the box.

Also, I'd suggest adjusting the CSS so that the content attempts to be vertically centered on the page at 800x600 resolution as well.

I assume the further development is going to include links from the Presentation page to at least provide specifics of the papers presented, books written etc. since both lend credence to the claim.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Thanks for the feedback.
This was a one evening job so the content will be improved further on. I'll look over the CSS, even if I don't know a good way to vetically align the content without a lot of workarounds, and I "dislike" workarounds....

Any more comments on the design itself (how does it feel to look at it) ?

Sorry if I didnt read all previous posts.

It would be nice to see a different image/photo on the various pages.
