Expertise: Optical fibre sensors, photonics, medical devices, analytical and materials sciences;
I have joined the University of Nottingham (UoN) as a Lecturer in Electronics, Nanoscale Bioelectronics and Biophotonics in 2013. My research focuses on the development of fibre optic instrumentation for biomedical application and covers the complete developmental spectrum from discovery at the interface with physics and chemistry through to application e.g. in healthcare and environmental monitoring. I have spent 8 years in Japan, as a researcher and latterly as a lecturer, where I have worked mainly on the development of various facile methods for the preparation of advanced functional nano–materials with properties and parameters that can be tailored to satisfy needs of specific applications. I have published over 60 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, book contributions, hold 11 patents (several of which have been licensed to the UK and Japan based companies) and given invited presentations in the field of fibre-optic chemical sensors. I have successfully supervised and co-supervised undergraduate, graduate and PhD students at the University of Kitakyushu (UoK), Cranfield University and UoN. I am currently supervising 8 PhD students working on the development of the OFS functionalised with advanced materials for various applications.
