My main research interest is into high strain rate properties of a wide range of materials, both inert and energetic. To do this a number of techniques are used: Drop-weight, Hopkinson Bar, Taylor Impact, Plate Impact. The development of novel high-speed diagnostics and analysis methods is a long-term area. I am particularly interested in those materials which show a strongly non-linear behaviour in response, porous, granular, biological or composite.
I have strong research links to the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies and currently chair the IOP Group 'Shock Wave and Extreme Conditions'.
My research areas tend to be described as 'multi-disciplinary' generally on the areas involving Physics, Chemistry, Bio-sensors and Materials Science.
