Personal profile

Personal Statement

I design biomedical instruments on the frontier between optics, electronics, and medicine. I work on portable and field clinical equipment, medical equipment for challenging environments, sensing for robotic surgery and digital healthcare. I pursue my activity on a global scale, to empower citizens to manage and improve health, live better lives, and to provide a pathway to healthcare equality and sustainability.

I currently hold a Senior Lectureship in Digital Health at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Strathclyde. Please contact me for information on possibilities for collaboration and studentships.
