Summary

I am a Mechanical Engineer with a particular interest within the biomedical field.  I gained my BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering in 2007, and PhD, in Micro-electromechanical-systems in 2011, both from the University of Dundee.  My research focuses on organ-on-a-chip tecnologies for women's health and low cost point of care diagnostic devices for both human and veterinary applications.

My main teaching activities are within the area of Finite Element Analysis.
