Projects per year
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 Equality, Diversity and Inclusion 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.
I am keen to supervise doctorate students on topics related to laser ultrasonics and opto-acoustic sensing/imaging. Please contact me via email and find out more here.
