About

I am a Reader in Intelligent Mechatronics Systems and Technology, Department of Engineerng, College of Engineering and Technology, University of Derby, UK.

I am an international expert who has made a personal distinction and international recognition, in the field of Advanced Mechatronics Systems and Technology, with more than 20-years industrial applied research experience in Mechatronics Systems Hardware and Software, Innovation for Sustainable Engineering, Advanced manufacturing technology, Sustainable design and innovation in products and manufacturing processes, Control and instrumentation, Sustainable rail transport infrastructure, Cancer Treatment using CVD Diamond Radio Therapy Technology, Information Technology for Blind and Visually Impaired people, Chronic Diseases Technological Solutions, TeleHealth, Telecare, Assisted Living Technology, Automation, Electric Cars-Steer by wire, AD-HOC wireless technology, CO2 and climate change, 3D smart actuator for robotic guidance and machine vision, electro-rheological fluid micro actuators technology, software tools, and crises management and prevention. I also have a number of patents in these areas, of applied research and sustainable technology.

I have chaired, secured, managed and delivered several European Commission projects, FP5, FP6 and FP7 programmes, of a budget of more than 20 million Euro’s and have made a great economic and social impact in this area of expertise in UK and EU, as a whole. My research work has brought many innovative outcomes that have been used commercially by a number of Small to Medium and Large enterprise organisations around the world, such as: Intersurgical Ltd – UK, Veslatec Oy – Finland, Semelab plc. – UK, PTW Freiburg – Germany, Neotek – France, Kirchmayer Handel & Consulting GmbH – Austria, Spectrum Telecom Installations Ltd – Ireland, Diamond Materials GmbH – Germany, Fireworks International Ltd – UK, Pirotecnia Oscense SA – Spain, Total Motion Systems Ltd –UK, Micromech Limited – UK, Smart Technology Ltd – UK, Audi -Germany, Ford – UK, Schlumberger – France, Nissan – Japan and Rolls Royce - UK.

I have been supervising a number of PhD and MSc research students, across Europe and I have a number of industrial notes and several publications in international world leading journals and conferences.

My current roles at Derby involves Teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level (MSc & PhD Programmes), Creative and Engineering Technology, Research and Development, EC and UK bid writing, preparation, Coordination, delivery, management and Mechatronics Engineering across a broad range of European industries to help develop innovative new technologies for a diverse range of industrial applications.
