I am a Research Fellow in the Centre for Industrial Ultrasonics. My current research focuses on the development of new ultrasonic devices for hostile environments, particularly those characterised by high pressure and temperature. It is hoped that these devices can be utilised effectively for flow measurement and other processes encompassing a wide range of industrial and medical applications.

I obtained my PhD in 2014 from the School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, where I investigated Nitinol shape memory alloys for tuneable resonance ultrasonic devices. The following list contains peer-reviewed journal publications from my research career.
