About me

I work within the Research Technical Team in the department of Biological, Biomedical & Analytical Science. In the Faculty of Health & Applied Sciences.

We provide technical support in all the research laboratories across the department.

My background is in sensors (metal oxide semiconductors, electrochemical sensors and biosensors), gas chromatography and screen printing. 

Previously I have worked on research projects developing sensors to measure carbon dioxide and malodourous compounds, and devices for diagnosing C.difficile, Norovirus, Inflammatory bowel disease and Irritable bowel syndrome.
