Overview

I am currently the Technical Services Business Partner for CLES and have worked as a Technical Services Manager in CEMPS over the past few years. I am the Radiation Protection Officer (CLES) and Laser Safety Officer (CLES and EMPS). I have extensive experience in lab management, Health and Safety, purchasing large lab equipment, building labs, space management and have built a good working relationship with stake holders across the campus.

I have a PhD in Material Science Engineering from the University of Exeter (2007), The Effects of Accelerated Ageing on the Chemical, Physical and Mechanical Properties of Artists' Acrylic Paints. A project in conjunction with Tate Britain. I have 8 years' experience in Research and Development. I have experience in analytical techniques such as DMTA (Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis), DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry), FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry), SEM-EDX (Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometry), TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy), Micro CT (Computed Tomography), Tensile Testing, Fracture Toughness testing, VSC (Video Spectral Comparator), photogrammetry, RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), micro-fade testing and accelerated ageing techniques.

I also have experience in Project Management from initial concepts, to funding application through to completion and disseminating of information on the national and international stage. I have worked for various research groups around the world such as the Swedish National Heritage Board, Tate Britain, Queen's University as a Professor of Conservation Research Science, and the Canadian Conservation Institute. I have also been a part of the University of Nottingham's Mentoring program for the past 5 years.
