I am a Reader at Cardiff School of Engineering. My current research interest lies in the field of advanced manufacturing technologies with a specific focus on nano 'mechanical' machining (AFM probe-based) and micro 'thermal' machining (laser-based).

I obtained my PhD at Cardiff University in the area of intelligent CAD/CAM in 2005.

Prior to my first appointment as a Lecturer in 2012, I was the recipient of a five-year Academic Fellowship from the Research Councils UK. Since 2005, I have published over 80 papers (including 44 journal papers), principally in the area of micro and nano manufacturing.

In 2011, I received the Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

I have secured, as Principal Investigator (PI), research income for a total value of £540k. This includes two EPSRC Grants (EP/I012133/1 and EP/M020703/1). Following staff changes in the School in 2011, I was subsequently invited to act as PI for two FP7 projects (MULTILAYER and POLARIC), which together were worth £1.0m.

I have also been Co-Investigator on research programmes totalling £1.1m, which comprise two EPSRC grants (EP/F056745/1 and EP/K031635/1) and one EU project (ECOLASERFACT).
