Projects per year
I completed a Physics/Electronics degree here at the University of Hertfordshire and then did a Ph.D here on the subject of medical imaging during which I developed an Optical Tomography system utilising absorption and scattering of modulated near- infrared light in biological tissue. On completion of my PhD, I joined the Science and Technology Research Institute (STRI) and have since participated in a variety of research projects including:
- A light scattering based water-borne particle characterisation instrument.
- A dual channel single particle bio-aerosol fluorescence sensor.
- A cloud spectra-polarimeter instrument for analysing cloud structure by measuring short wave near-infrared polarised light.
- A single particle light scattering pattern imaging instrument based on an image intensified camera.
- Microcontroller based low-cost optical particle counters.
I also participate in some teaching activity in the school of PAM, primarily in the role of laboratory and project supervision.
