Personal profile

Overview

Dr David Hutson was born in Doncaster, England in 1960. He received a BSc in Applied Physics and a PhD in Physics and Applied Physics from the University of Strathclyde, Scotland. Over a period of twelve years he worked with leading manufacturers of data storage devices with responsibilities for R&D of recording head components utilising thin film technologies; first as a senior engineer with Rodime Europe Ltd and latterly as a senior manager of a high impact team with Seagate Technology Inc. Between industrial posts and over a four year period he returned to academia as a senior research fellow funded by the Wellcome Trust and was responsible for the successful development of a superconducting gradiometer for the detection of neurological activity in the brain and spinal cord. In 2000/3 he was MD of AMCET Ltd (a University of Dundee spin-out) specialising in the commercialisation of a number of novel thin film materials for sensors and semiconductor applications. Prior to taking up his current lectureship in 2008 at the University of the West of Scotland he was self-employed as a Technology and Commercialisation Advisor assisting universities and businesses with sensor design, process development, and technology transfer. During this time a successful SMART application was made for a university spin-out.  David has 33 publications in thin films and sensor technologies and holds two patents.
