"Study of particulate pollution in the atmosphere; focussing on magnetic analysis of bio-monitors to estimate individual’s exposure to fine (PM2.5) particles."
Since October 2015 I have been employed as an Instructor in the section of Life Sciences, within the School of Human and Life Sciences, based at the CCCU North Holmes Campus. I am involved in teaching at Foundation level and Level 4, as well as working part-time towards my PhD.
I previously worked at CCCU as a sessional Physics Lecturer and for the NHS as a Medical Physicist, specialising in Nuclear Medicine. I completed a MSc in Medical Physics at Leeds University, and an undergraduate MPhys in Experimental Physics at York University.
As a member of the Ecology Research Group (ERG) my PhD focus is to study human exposure to particulate air pollution. I aim to establish feasible methods of recording particulate air pollution in small areas which are poorly represented by distant monitoring stations; beginning with magnetic and chemical studies of bags of sphagnum moss. Ultimately I hope to use localised ambient studies, as well as personal monitoring systems, to measure the amount and type of pollution exposure received by individuals; particularly those with an unusually high occupational-exposure.
Level 0 – All Foundation level modules, specialising in Physics and Maths.
Level 4 – Core Science, specialising in Physics. Environmental Systems; specialising in Thermodynamics.
