Dr Andrew Feeney is a Lecturer in the Centre for Medical and Industrial Ultrasonics, School of Engineering, University of Glasgow. He obtained a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 2010, and gained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the same institution in 2014. He then undertook postdoctoral research into new ultrasonic exploration technology for high pressure and temperature environments. In 2016, he joined the Department of Physics, University of Warwick, where he was Research Fellow in the Centre for Industrial Ultrasonics until 2020. Further to his academic qualifications, he is a chartered engineer and member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. His current research focuses on the integration of smart materials, particularly those exhibiting shape memory, into ultrasonic devices and electro-mechanical systems for a range of medical and industrial applications.
