Reader in Engineering, University of Aberdeen

My main research interests are in modelling dynamic systems, in non-linear dynamics and vibration and in the application of these areas along with design to solve industrial problems. These have been applied to a wide variety of systems, including non-linear rotor systems, impacting systems, geotechnical systems and aspects of a non-linear rotordynamics/wear problem. I also have an interest in applying dynamics and design to biomedical problems.

Current Research:
My main research is currently focussed on the next stage of the underwater cutting project.
Novel Underwater Cutting System (Phase 2). ITF project, bid submitted to BP, Shell and Conoco Philips, £477,693 (Principal investigator).
