Richard O'Leary

Lecturer B

Personal Statement

I am a lecturer in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, my teaching is focussed on principles of measurement, signal acquisition and data processing as applied to engineering and biomedical applications.

 

My research base is in the Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering, the emphasis is the implementation of novel transduction systems, both piezoelectric and capacitive modalities, to service applications including measurement of material properties; ultrasound imaging; sonochemistry and non-destructive testing.

Expertise & Capabilities

  • Polymer Science

  • Acoustic Transduction

  • Wave Propagation

  • Finite Element Modelling

Teaching Interests

My teaching is focussed on principles of measurement and fundamental concepts of analogue and digital circuits and systems used for measurement and control. I contribute to a variety of modules in this area. In addition, I co-ordinate 4th year Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Individual Projects.

Research Interests

My research is primarily focussed on ultrasonic transduction – primarily the application of novel polymer materials and synthesis methods to the creation of new types of transducers. The main goals are improving sensitivity, so that we can probe deeper into the material or interest, and enhancing resolution, allowing us to see the echoes from small targets especially when they are close together.
