Peter graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2001 with a MEng in Mechanical Engineering and a Diploma of Industrial Studies. During his studies he spent one year at the Danish Technical University as part of the Erasmus exchange programme. He remained at Birmingham to complete a PhD in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) in 2003, funded by EPSRC and GE Sensing, where his thesis investigated novel micro mechanical structures and manufacturing processes suitable for improving the performance of MEMS resonant pressure sensors. Having completed his PhD, Peter joined GE Sensing, where he progressed to the role of Senior Design Engineer. While at GE he was responsible for the design of development of the company’s high performance TERPS range of sensors. Peter left GE Sensing to take a Lectureship in Manufacturing and Metrology at The University of Nottingham in 2007, where he worked on metrology for high precision manufacturing. In 2014 he joined Loughborough University as a Senior Lecturer in Metrology and Automation. Peter holds an EPSRC Fellowship in Manufacturing and is currently a member of the Intelligent Automation Centre at Loughborough University, where he leads the Robust Intelligent Metrology Laboratory.
