Personal profile

Personal Statement

Initially I studied at the University of Western Australia and obtained a BSc(Hon) and PhD in Physical Chemistry. I was then a post-doctoral researcher in electrochemistry at Aarhus University in Denmark (1995) and electrochemical engineering at the University of Newcastle in the UK (1996 - 1998). Subsequently I worked (1999 - 2015) as a Process Engineer for a number of UK companies involved in the microfabrication of optoelectronic, semiconductor and microsystem devices. 

In 2015 I moved to the University of Strathclyde where I am currently a Knowledge Exchange Associate in the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering. My main activities and interests are in the area of corrosion prevention - espcially the development of corrosion inhibitors for harsh environments and investigations of corrosion under insulation (CUI). I am a member of Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and NACE International.
