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 study for his PhD in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), which was funded by EPSRC and GE Sensing; his thesis investigated Novel Micro Mechanical Structures and Manufacturing Processes Suitable for Improving the Performance of MEMS Resonant Pressure Sensors. Having completed his PhD degree, Peter joined GE Sensing in 2003, 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 sensor. In 2007, he left GE Sensing to take on the role of Lecturer in Manufacturing and Metrology at The University of Nottingham, where he worked on Metrology for High Precision Manufacturing. Peter joined Loughborough University in 2014 as Senior Lecturer in Metrology and Automation and was a member of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Intelligent Automation. He holds an EPSRC Fellowship in Manufacturing and is currently Reader in Metrology, High Value Manufacturing Beacon Lead and also Deputy Director of the Intelligent Automation Centre.
