Personal profile

Research interests

Electromagnetic, magnetic & inductive sensing for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) & Healthcare Technology applications. Magnetic particle manipulation & low cost microfluidics. 

For potential collaboration, postgraduate or postdoctorate opportunities, please contact Robert.hughes@bristol.ac.uk.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT):

Eddy-current testing (ECT) is an electromagnetic sensing NDT technique.  Current research activities in this area include the development of novel technology and data-processing techniques for:

  • Defect charcaterisation
  • Carbon-fibre composite inspection
  • Complex geometry inspection
  • Eddy-current array sensors

Healthcare Technology:

Developing healthcare technology for point-of-care diagnosis, researching:

  • Low-cost microfluidics & lab-on-a-chip technology
  • Magnetic particle manipulation - used in bacterial labelling & trapping
  • Inductive sensing of magnetic particles
