I am also a Visiting Senior Fellow at the National Nuclear Laboratory and an Honorary Visiting Professor at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. I am a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Society for Experimental Mechanics.
Previously, I was in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Chair, 2004-09) at Michigan State University, USA; and the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Head, 2001-04) at the University of Sheffield. I was a founding member and Director of the Composite Vehicle Research Centre at Michigan State University.
