I come from a strong mechanical engineering background in which I was apprenticed trained in engineering and specialised eventually in design of precision engineering for a world leader in metrology (Bowers Group). I have worked both on New Product Development (research-based large-scale projects) and Applications Design (solving individual complex measuring problems world-wide).
I completed my BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield part-time alongside working as a Design Engineer.
During my MSc (Eng) in Advanced Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, I investigated the effect of surface coatings on the transfer of pathogens from touchscreen phone screens to humans, by developing a application specific tribometer stage and using image analysis.
I am currently completing my PhD within the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (IMBE) at the University of Leeds. My research aims to assess the cortical thickening in total hip replacement patients.
