For the last nine years I have been very active in the research and technology transfer of Power IC Technologies.

I completed my PhD on this topic in 2007 where I reported world leading improvements in the performance of devices for Power Integrated Circuit (PIC) Technologies.

Recently, I have exploited my extensive knowledge of silicon integrated circuit technologies in the medical and biological arenas and is collaborating with nanotechnologists, biologists and medical scientists at Swansea University.

This has led to direct funding by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to develop a new CMOS technology platform with application areas including Lab-On-A-Chip to allow better understanding of the immunological response that underpins many disease states including allergy, diabetes and cancer. The new platform will also facilitate the study of fluids with application areas in the energy sector.
