Much of my career has been in the development of millimetre wave systems for research instrumentation and to bring novelty in design to enable commercial exploitation in the aerospace and security sectors. In 2012 I was a Senior Lecturer at Manchester University on the MSc ‘Radio Imaging and Sensing’ course and later joined the Imaging and Sensing group at Manchester Metropolitan University as a Reader, to research millimetre wave systems and lecture on electrical engineering and physics. From 1994 to 2011 I pioneered defence systems and capabilities for passive and active millimetre wave imaging and non-imaging sensors at DRA/DERA and then QinetiQ, collaborating with a number of universities. I became a QinetiQ Fellow for developing near-field aperture synthesis concepts for next generation imagers and developing validated scene simulation software to help market the imaging capabilities of emerging sensors. To pursue these fields further I gained a Royal Society Industry Fellowship to Manchester University where I demonstrated a number of near-field aperture synthesis imaging systems. Between 1984 and 1994 I developed millimetre wave diagnostics to research tokamak fusion plasmas at JET, gaining a PhD from Imperial College Plasma Physics group, before moving to the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics as a post-doctoral researcher to develop a suite of millimetre wave plasma diagnostics. After completing a first degree in Physics with Astrophysics at Leeds University, I gained an MSc in Lasers and their Applications from Essex University which enabled me to work as a research scientist on optical and acoustic systems for defence in Plessey System Research (now Roke Manor Research).
