I have previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Ultrasonics group at Warwick university, and before that in the Nanotechnology department at Cranfield university. I have experience in condensed matter experimental physics, including piezoelectric microsystems, low-temperature photo-luminescence spectroscopy and ultrasonics.
Following this, my colleague Steve Dixon and myself formed Sonemat as a spin-off company bringing ultrasonic technology from the laboratory to market as both off-the-shelf and bespoke ultrasonic NDT solutions. I currently direct Sonemat as a full time job.
