I have been actively engaged in research in optics and biophotonics since 2005. I have worked on a variety of projects across a range of different fields linked with a common photonics theme. A feature of my work is that I have worked extensively with multidisciplinary teams which have allowed me to develop a unique and comprehensive skill set.
I am a current member of the researchers' group at the University of Strathclyde and represent researchers on the Research and Knowledge Exchange Committee (RKEC).
