Welcome to my homepage. I also have a linked in profile, a twitter feed and a blog.
I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Department of
Mechanical Engineering. I am the Director of Studies for all MSc programmes in the Department of Mechanical
I teach a range of courses in innovation, product development, project
management (the latter 2 available to industry professionals as CPD) and sustainability. I am particularly interested in
sustainable development both from a strategic and operational view. To
this end I am involved with:
- MSc in Automotive Engineering; suitable for
engineering graduates seeking to work in the automotive industry.
- MSc in Engineering Design; suitable for graduates
in subjects such as engineering, physics and maths. This MSc covers
both technical (hence the pre-requisites) and creative sides of
- MSc in Mechatronics; suitable for both mechanical
and electrical engineering graduates. The obvious application of
mechatronics is robotics, but the applications are wider than this
including signal processing, control engineering and medical systems.
- The Innovation
MSc is our flagship programme for the collaboration between
Engineering and Management. It is suitable for graduates from
engineering backgrounds who wish to move to a managerial or strategic
role. It is equally suitable for business and management graduates who
wish to move into high technology areas (automotive, IT, biotech etc).
I also work with Easton Community Centre, the Centre for Sustainable
Energy and DECC (the Department of Energy & Climate Change).
I am a Director of Low Carbon Gordano, a community energy company whose current (2014) project involves an 1.8MW solar array at Hallen.
My other research & teaching interests include agile software
development, artificial intelligence and knowledge management
My PhD students include:
- Maddy Stow, who I co-supervise with Marcelle McManus. Maddy is researching the lifecycle benefits of community energy
- Mendy Memboshora, who I co-supervise with Elies Dekoninck. Mendy
is researching the supply chain aspects of environmental new product development
- Fahad Alazemi, who I co-supervise with Linda Newnes. Fahad is conducting economic and environmental analyses of renewable energy in Kuwait
- Danish Mishra, who I co-supervise with Baris Yalabik. Danish is researching technology transfer of environmental innovations in the
automotive industry, particularly in Formula 1
My pre-Bath background is in IT, particularly web information
artificial intelligence and sustainability. I have worked for (among
others) HP Labs, University of Bristol, and the University of the West
of England (UWE).
