Graduated as an electronics engineer with a BEng(Hons) from Salford University in 1996. Then, following a period of research with Prof. Trevor J. Hall at King's College London, I obtained my PhD in 2004 from the Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group at Imperial College London. I then became a Research Fellow at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London in 2006, supervising three PhD students and managing the EMLAB, a facility within the Institute. Appointed as Lecturer in Engineering Design at Brunel University in October 2010. Now focussing on bio related energy harvesting devices and circuits.
