Associate Professor Daniel McCluskey is Deputy Dean of School for the School of Physics, Engineering & Computer Science (SPECS) at the University of Hertfordshire. He is responsible for strategic leadership across the STEM portfolio spanning education, research and enterprise with a particular focus on the operational challenges for successful delivery. Daniel is a Security Cleared Chartered Engineer and Associate Professor of Research within the School with a track record in successful, multidisciplinary collaborations between Industry, Academics and Research staff across the Engineering spectrum, leading the delivery of projects with consistent success. He graduated with a BEng (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering (2003) from the University of Hertfordshire before gaining his PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics from Coventry University (2009). As an Academic Leader Daniel has overseen the introduction of new degree programmes, alongside the redevelopment of existing established programmes, successfully taking these to external accreditation with a number of Professional and Regulatory Bodies. Alongside his Academic Management role Daniel is an active researcher, previously leading both the Centre for Research in Biodetection Technologies as its Director, and the Microfluidic & Microengineering Research Group as Head of Research. His own research is focussed on applied engineering solutions that translate to challenging real world environments, evidenced by his contribution to the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science, assessing airborne virus transmission and detection systems. His current Biodetection R&D projects concern integrated, autonomous systems for the early detection of maliciously released biowarfare agents for the protection of civilian, security and military populations.
