A polymer composite materials technologist specialising in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Experienced in the accredited mechanical testing of coupons, components and full-scale structures. Familiar with all standard non-destructive evaluation techniques, particularly acoustic emission and acoustoultrasonics.
My work involves co-ordinating mechanical testing programs (both National and European) concerned with developing SHM technologies, I also take responsibility for project management, direction, deliverables, and new project application.
I am an expert speaker on SHM for an advanced lecture series touring European Universities, originally within the EU funded "SHM-in-Action", but now self financing. However, my focus is generally on industry application rather than academia.
