Profile

Biography

I am head of the Ocean Technology and Engineering Group and lead over forty engineers, technologists, and scientists in the development and provision of technology for support of marine, aquatic and environmental science and related industrial and regulatory applications.

My research interests include the development of environmental measurement systems including the development of new chemical sensors and sensors for microbiology. I have a particular interest in the development of microsensors using either or both microfabrication and microfluidics. This has led to the development of a suite of sensors for nutrients, carbonate system parameters, trace metals, organic nutrients, pathogens, phytoplankton, hydrocarbons, pollutants and toxins.

Skills:

  • Development and generation of research ideas and technology development programmes
  • Microfluidic Systems Design
  • Sensor Design
  • Metrology of complex parameters
  • Autonomous Systems
  • Multidisciplinary Engineering
