Biography

I currently hold two roles within the Faculty of Engineering and Technology; Programme Leader for the foundation year, and Associate Dean (Global Engagement).

Although my background is in physics, I have worked as an engineer most of my life. My research was initially into plastic optical fibre sensors, but I now mainly study engineering education. My teaching is usually focussed on engineering principles, sensors, and image analysis. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and have been involved in delivering programmes in teaching and learning in HE both with LJMU and the Open University. I continue to have extensive involvement in quality processes such as programme validation and review, and act as External Examiner at other institutions.

I am also the University's Laser Safety Officer, overseeing the safe use of our high powered lasers.
