Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am Senior Lecturer at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, which I joined in 2017 as a Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow .  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 and Nottingham Universities in order to develop adapt a new capability for real-time, remote ultrasonic phased array imaging, which adapts the array to the demands of the inspected structure. These adaptive Laser Induced Phased Arrays have applications in remote non-destructive evaluation, in process evaluation and material characterisation.

My research interests include:

  • remote ultrasonic sensing/imaging using optical methods
  • in-line manufacturing process monitoring in extreme environments
  • non-destructive testing
  • material characterisation
  • 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 Sellafield and BAE Systems.

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