More details
I have several years of diverse experience working for various polymer manufacturing industries. As a result of working for these industries I have acquired significant knowledge of the science and application of a wide range of materials, such as: elastomers, plastics, textiles and metals. I have a BSc degree in Polymer Science and Technology. In addition, I was awarded a PhD for work carried out in collaboration with British Gas concerned with developing elastomeric materials with enhanced longevity for use in sealing applications in British Gas distributions systems. I have over twenty years experience as a senior lecturer specialising in Rubber Science and Engineering. I have published several papers concerned with various aspects of rubber science and technology. I have also delivered numerous industrial short-courses. Presently, I work for ARTIS which is an organisation primarily established to serve the research and development needs of the rubber and plastic industries.
