Lecturer of Analytical Chemistry, University of Hull

My current research involves development of sensor often focusing on rapid and frequent sensing to better understand chemical concentrations in dynamic environments. In particular this involves developed of paper based sensors that enable frequent measurements where needed, that could be undertaken by citizen scientists.

I recently completed my PhD developing paper based sensors to detection contaminants in river water. During this I developed a paper based sensor to enable volunteers to monitor nutrient levels in their local waterways across Northern Europe.
