Personal profile

Research interests

I have developed a keen interest in finding means to create useful power from waste resources through thermodynamic processes, such as a closed system cycle. The most important part in such a system is the energy recovery expander, and I am working to produce cost effective, efficient devices operating in versatile conditions. 

Knowledge exchange


My goal is to make an effective contribution to current knowledge in this field, by succeeding in delivering a reliable energy recovery expander, operating in a system that is capable of producing energy from renewable sources. 

Research interests

Relevant Experience 

I have 2 years of research and development experience in instrumentation, commissioning and characterisation of energy conversion test beds at the STEP Lab (Sustainable Technology and Engineering Projects). 

Research interests

Personal Skill Set 

I am a result driven individual with a 40-year proven track record in commercial and IT businesses. I have the ‘can do’ attitude and the vision past the chequered flag. More recently, I have enthusiastically learnt many new skills and extended my knowledge of engineering and scientific subjects.

Why the University of Brighton 

Two reasons, as a husband, father and grandfather, I wanted to increase my knowledge in my life-long interest of automotive engineering and chose Brighton because of its proximity since beginning my university studies in 2016. Secondly, Brighton Universities recent investment in the STEP Lab and having the established research group at the AEC (Advanced Engineering Centre) makes it the go to place for engineering research and development. I am proud to be an ‘Old Brightonian’!
