I received a BEng degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Sheffield in 1991. Following many years in industry I returned to this university to study for a PhD which was awarded in 2007.

I joined the medical physics department of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS FT and have developed a number of electronic medical devices.

Some years later, I returned to the University of Sheffield to continue this research theme together with a number of teaching duties.

My research has included very low power cryptographic hardware implementations of the Advanced Encryption Standard, comparison of stream cipher candidate ciphers hardware performance, 64-channel functional electrical nerve stimulator with autonomous setup for correcting drop-foot, electrical impedance spectroscopy probes for tissue analysis and development of a tele-health system to support type-1 diabetes.
