I am a chemist by training, graduating from University of Leicester with a degree and PhD. I have worked at Lucideon (formerly Ceram Research) for 34 years, initially on traditional ceramic projects such as unleaded glaze, UV curable ink (decals) development. I've had experience of initiating winning and running many UK Government and EC projects. More recently my focus has been on healthcare consultancy, helping clients by applying the knowledge gained on powder characterization and control in ceramics to pharmaceuticals, bone replacement materials and consumer goods. As well as technical manager for healthcare consultancy I am principal consultant for powders at Lucideon.
Outside work I enjoy long distance walks, bird watching, music (especially indie rock), cooking.
