I am currently a Chair in Multiscale & Sustainable Manufacturing at The University of Manchester after having joined the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in 2002. My expertise and research is in Manufacturing Technologies (machining science, micro manufacturing, laser processing and sustainable manufacturing). I focus on manufacturing at different length and speed scales. I obtained a PhD and MSc in Manufacturing Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology respectively from The University of Liverpool, UK.

I am excited about developing engineering science solutions to the major challenges of resource efficiency and industrial sustainability. My research focuses on innovative manufacturing technologies and resource efficient or green manufacturing. We research and understand how we can make manufacturing industry technologically and economically competitive but operating within the boundaries of environmentally friendly manufacture. I am a Member of the International Academy of Production Engineering, College International pour la Recherche en Productique (CIRP). The CIRP was founded in 1951 with the aim to address scientifically, through international co-operation, issues related to modern production science and technology.

In the School of Mechanical Aerospace and Civil Engineering, my major administrative responsibility is as Director of Research. The University has an important role to play in knowledge creation, delivering industrial, environmental and policy impact. Companies, universities and other organisations are welcome to contact me regarding working with the School to address your needs.
