"I spent 23 years in research, teaching, supervising and leading courses"

“Following my academic qualifications and two PhD degrees in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, I spent 23 years in research, teaching, supervising and leading courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students in a number of national and international universities. I also have significant experience on industry projects during my work as a Process Engineer, Leader for Engineering Group, Consultant Engineer, and recently Senior Design Engineer in the modelling team at the Center of Integrated Photonics (CIP) Technologies in Ipswich, UK. As Academic Course Leader for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses I manage the programme’s content to ensure that graduates obtain the range of competences and skills required for successful careers in industrial technologies and control engineering.”
