I'm a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering within the School of Engineering. I've studied BEng (Hons) in Automated Control System (former USSR), followed by MSc in Real-Time Systems at LSBU, before completing PhD in Automated Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Inspection.

I've been involved in a number of Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)- and European-funded automated pipeline and weld inspection NDT research projects. I've worked at University of Bristol and developed 2D phased array ultrasonic transducer. I've been awarded for my 2D phased array modelling innovative works by the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME). I've achieved the Industrial Automated Innovation Award, 2007, and a highly commended research paper award at the Climbing and Walking Robots and Support Technologies for Mobile Machines conference, 2010.

My research interests and activities include:

-Ultrasonic NDT system, design 2D phased array systems, beam focusing model, process and analyse array signals

-Remote Automated NDT inspection system - includes mechatronics and control system

-Use of advanced measurement and defect sizing techniques, TOFD method, improve the detection capabilities for the near surface dead zone area

I'm a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), Member of CLAWAR and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
