I have been a member of the EEE Department since 1985 as part of the Optoelectronics Research Group, now the Centre for Microsystems and Photonics. Prior to this, I worked on integrated optics research at Glasgow University for fibre optic communication systems. Since 1985, my research has involved areas such as fibre optic components, evanescent wave sensors, laser spectroscopy, photoacoustic spectroscopy and fibre laser systems.
I have taught several undergraduate courses including analogue and digital electronics and supervised many undergraduate projects in photonics. Over the years I have been closely involved with the management of the joint undergraduate course in electrical and mechanical engineering and currently I am deputy chair of the departmental courses and teaching committee.
