Research interests

As a member of the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies research interests include the design and fabrication of in-fibre Bragg Gratings and their application as sensors, for the control of short pulses and for the processing and control of sub-carrier multiplexed microwave signals. 

My other interests include wireless sensor networks -  using theoretical, experimental and CAD design techniques used to investigate novel architectures and protocols through to implementation on hardware and field trials.
