Barry Jones: Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of UK Operations
Dr Tim Harvey MChem MRSC: Technical Development Manager
Tim graduated from the University of Salford in 1998 with a Chemistry degree. Following this, he spent seven years working in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical fields as a Process Chemist, transferring chemical processes from lab to large- scale plant production. Tim returned to university in 2005 to study for a PhD at the University of Manchester. Tim’s doctorate study involved the development of vibrational spectroscopic methods for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. After gaining a PhD in 2008, Tim joined AA Sensors as part of the UK government funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) in conjunction with the University of Manchester. Since joining the company, Tim has been leading the development of AA Sensors range of novel remote water monitoring products.
Prof. Peter R. Fielden BSc, ARCS, PhD, FRSC, CChem.: Technical Development Team
Peter Fielden has a major interest in analytical science applied to both chemical and biochemical applications. He has particular expertise in both electrokinetic separations and electroanalytical measurements, and has published widely in these areas. His group was the first to demonstrate an integrated, microfabricated isotachophoresis (ITP) device, and have pioneered further key developments in this field. He also has a substantial interest in miniaturization and microfabrication, and has been a pioneer (with Prof. Nick Goddard) in the area of polymer microfabrication for analytical systems. He also has significant experience in the design of microfluidic platforms for quantitative analytical and high throughput experimentation. Fielden and Goddard have jointly managed the highly successful Miniaturisation and Nanotechnology Group at Manchester, since its formation in 1992. A particular feature of the Miniaturisation and Nanotechnology Group is its substantial portfolio with industrial clients.
Prof. Nicholas J. Goddard: Technical Development Team
Nick Goddard has a major interest in the use of optical methods for sensing applications, and has published widely in this area. His main area of expertise is in the use of leaky optical waveguides as sensors for both small molecules and particles (such as bacteria). This work has included the first optical waveguide sensor combined with a microchannel and the first leaky waveguide biosensor. He also has a substantial interest in miniaturization and microfabrication, and has been a pioneer (with Prof. Peter Fielden) in the area of polymer microfabrication for analytical systems. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications and 15 patents.
