I am a Lecturer in Polymers and Composites within the Department of Engineering. In addition to teaching across the range of Engineering programmes at the University of Swansea, I am also engaged in range of research activities and projects. 

My research interests are primarily in the areas of long-term lifetime behaviour of polymers and polymer-based composites, Nanocomposites, and 3D printing of composites.  Most of this research is industrially-linked with companies across the UK.

Current research areas include the development of:

-  Graphene toughened carbon fibre/epoxy composites
-  Novel graphene/polymer nanocomposites
-  Novel 3D printed composites
