About me

Paul is a Lecturer in Mechatronics at UWE.

Paul’s research focuses on ingestible sensors for sensing conditions in the gastrointestinal tract using an inductive link external to the patient to gather information from the ingested sensor.

Paul's research centres on edible electronics and enabling rapid diagnostics from in-body sensors. 

Paul completed a PhD at the University of Bristol in 2017 where he researched using inductive power transfer coils embedded within our everyday environments, such as a home or office, to provide energy to power smartphone and wearable devices.

Paul has developed his research expertise during postdocs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Bartlett School of Architecture, running the prototyping lab at the Health Technology Hub at UWE and most recently as a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Print Research at UWE.
