My teaching and research expertise extends across interdisciplinary areas in mechanical engineering, materials and manufacturing with particular emphasis on mechanics of materials, metal-forming and industrial metallurgy. As a chartered engineer, I am particularly interested in industrial problem solving related to mechanical and manufacturing sector industries.
As the IMechE Accreditation Lead for the Department of Engineering and Mathematics, I have given leadership to the sequence of activities which lead to an unprecedented, highly successful accreditation visit outcome in 2015. The portfolio of courses presented for accreditation spanned across the academic disciplines of Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering. Whilst acknowledging the invaluable contributions of the management and staff across the department towards this activity, I attribute this success to strategic thinking, meticulous planning and attention to detail.
