Personal profile

Personal Statement

Prior to starting my academic career, I worked in industry for over 20 years, latterly in the pipeline industry for 7 years as an integrity consultant for GE Oil and Gas. In this role, I was responsible for providing fitness-for-purpose, remaining life and corrosion assessments for onshore and offshore pipelines. I have also worked as a materials engineer in the petrochemical and power generation industries involved with the operation, maintenance and design of chemical and power plant.


I joined Newcastle University in 2005 as a lecturer in Pipeline Engineering, running an MSc in Pipeline Engineering and establishing an MSc Subsea Engineering and Management. I also began my main research into the pipeline and marine transport of carbon dioxide for carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, my other research interests include modelling external corrosion in pipelines and evaluating the effect of denting on pipeline integrity.


At the University of Strathclyde, which I joined in 2014, I am continuing my research interests in CCS transport. However, I have a wide range of research expertise in metallurgy, failure analysis, welding and corrosion in the power, petrochemicals and energy sectors.
