Prof Patryk Kot

School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment

Prof. Patryk Kot, is a Professor of Microwave Sensor Technologies and the Deputy Director of Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies (BEST) Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University. Prof. Kot leads a multidisciplinary research team in the design and development of bespoke microwave sensors for global challenges. The focus of these sensors is the real-time detection of foreign substances/contaminations on various materials as quality assurance NDT devices. Prof. Kot started developing the fundamental concepts for using microwave spectroscopy to determine the moisture content in building fabrics during his PhD completed in 2017. The developed algorithms and concepts have led to close collaboration with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and securing of £1.3 million external funding from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) to explore the adaption of the fundamental concept of microwave spectroscopy for the detection of insecticide on walls for quality assurance of Governmental Indoor Residual Spraying programmes in low- and middle-income countries (India and Africa) to prevent the vector borne diseases. The developed prototype has just undergone its late stage of field trials and will go to manufacture in 2023. The success of this project has also led to further external funding of £1.3 million from BMGF to explore the fundamental concept of microwave spectroscopy being applied as a wearable technology for the detection of LF in humans. His research team have also developed microwave sensors for applications such as biohazards detection (DASA), healthcare applications (SBRI and UKRI), cultural heritage (Horizon 2020) and chemical process enhancement (Horizon 2020 FTI) with a total external funding award of over £25 million. Prof. Kot has recently formed a international collaboration with Warsaw University of Technology, University of Bamberg and University of West Attica investigating the expansion of using this technology for safeguarding of cultural heritage sites.
