Biography

I am responsible for the running and maintenance of the aqueous sample analytical equipment within the School. This includes the AnalytikJena Contra700 AAS, Thermo iCAP Qc ICP-MS and Thermo iCAP 7400 ICP-OES.

In my previous work I was the Lab Manager of an analytical metallurgy lab where we tested metal samples for impurities. I used a range of equipment including Leco C and O analysers, ICP-MS, microwave digestion using HF acid, surface area analysers and particle size analysers.

I also worked in the Analytical Development team at the National Nuclear Lab in Sellafield for 5 years developing new methods of analysis for various radioisotopes.
