I joined the University of Sheffield in 1997 as teacher in Dental Technology. I completed my PhD in 2008 and went on to complete a Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology in 2013. I now teach both clinical and technical aspects of removable prosthodontics.


My main interests are in materials and manufacturing technologies for dental devices and in particular advanced manufacturing. I am also involved with several clinical evaluation projects for dental devices.


High performance polymers for:
Indirect restorations
Removable prosthesis
Bi-laminate restorations
