“Please contact me via email for an appointment”

For free/busy information my calendar is available on:


Senior Lecturer, University of Salford, August 2010 – August 2012 United Kingdom

Lecturer, University of Salford, February 2005 – July 2010

I am currently teaching mathematics, and have recent teaching experience in the areas of Acoustics, Broadcast Systems and Meteorology.

Research Interests

Development and application of the atmospheric acoustic remote sensing instrument "SODAR" in the fields of meteorology and outdoor sound propagation. These measurements can be applied to urban air quality studies, outdoor noise control modelling, wind farm siting and monitoring, and air traffic control.

Perception of and affective response to wind turbine noise.
