Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer and a Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, which I joined in 2017.  I obtained my PhD in laser ultrasonics for carbon fibre composites from the Physics Department, at the University of Warwick. After a year of post doctoral work at the Department of Chemistry of Cambridge University, I joined the Applied Optics Group of the University of Nottingham, before joining Strathclyde.

My main research is focused on sensing and imaging using light. I am currently in a collaboration with Bristol University in order to adapt a data collection method (Full Matrix Capture) developed for ultrasonic phased arrays, to laser based ultrasound and with Exeter University for work related to phononic crystals.

My research interests include:

  • remote ultrasonic sensing/imaging using optical methods
  • non-destructive testing
  • chemical sensing
  • in-line manufacturing process monitoring in extreme environments
  • optically excited sensors
  • laser induced ultrasonic phased arrays
  • laser ultrasonics in advanced materials

Due to the industrial applications of my work I have an extensive record of industrial collaborations which include Rolls-Royce, Airbus and Serco.

I am co-chair of the Athena Swan committee at the Electronic & Electrical Engineering Department, member of the committee of the Physical Acoustics group, of the Institute of Physics and a member of the IEEE.

 

PhD vacancies:
