Area of research expertise - Outline

My research expertise is in materials, device design and applications. I am currently working on piezoelectric thin film and bulk materials for ultrasonic transducers for biomedical imaging and non-destructive testing. 

I am Project Leader for the UWS part of the ECU Scotland Attracting Diversity project, "Giving Girls Another Chance to Choose Physics and Engineering", which is investigating ways to bring under represented groups into Physics, Engineering, and Computing. 

My Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenioius public engagement project "A Car for Women and Other Stories" (May 2017 - July 2018) looks at the life and engineering career of Dorothee Pullinger, pioneering motor engineer in Scotland in the early 20th century.
