I’ve been based in the James Watt School of Engineering since 2020. I studied at Cardiff and Swansea Universities, where I worked on III-V LEDs, and then worked in a variety of industrial and academic settings, before being made a lecturer at Bangor University in 2012. During my time as a lecturer, I acquired grant funding from the Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, Interreg, Welsh Government, InnovateUK and European Commission, worth around £2m. I also have experience undertaking commercial work with a range of semiconductor, electronic and engineering companies, particular in areas related to failure analysis and reliability improvement. I have a lot of experience working in solar cell reliability as well as manufacturing large area electronic devices based upon organic and metal oxide materials.
