Get to know our Advisory Board Members

We are so thrilled to have the support of six distinguished Advisory Board Members aiding in shaping The Magnetics Show. 
With the help of these incredible minds we are able to create a show that is intrinsically based on 
identified industry and research needs within the Magnetics world.

Find out more about each Advisory Board Member...

What is an interesting fact about you?
I am a physical fitness freak and guitar player.

What are your hobbies outside of work?
Physical fitness, soccer, nature, music, reading (both fiction and non-fiction), and spending time with my family.

What do you hope to bring to The Magnetics Show?
Bringing the magnetics industry and researchers in academia focused on developing new magnetic materials closer together. Establishing stronger interactions and collaborations between industry and academia will benefit both and will help expedite the development and manufacturability of new magnetic materials with important and viable technological and commercial applications.

Favorite magnetic gadget?
There are simply too many magnetic 'gadgets' to list. Magnetism, magnetic materials, and their applications which pervade every aspect of our daily lives, and magnetic measurement techniques for materials characterization are all things I find insatiably fascinating.

What are you most passionate about within your career?
Albert Einstein once said, "the important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing", that is, we never stop learning. As a experimental physicist, I used magnetic measurement systems and instrumentation tocollect, analyse and interpret data for a wide range of magnetic materials, and in the process of doing so, I am constantly learning new things - this is my passion.

Proudest career moment so far?
The opportunity to develop the book Magnetic Measurement Techniques for Materials Characterization(Springer, 2012) together with Victorino Franco. I've been blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with many scientists in academia from the US, Europe and Asia. The experience and knowledge gained from these collaborations has been priceless, both personally and professionally.

What is an interesting fact about you?
I own a Peahen.

What did you aspire to be as a child?
A Jedi, still quite want to be that to be honest.

What hobbies do you enjoy outside of your job?
Lego/ Property

What is your favorite magnetics fact?
The kG (kiloGauss) and kg (kilograms) are not the same thing, but are consistently confused when describing magnets.

What are you most passionate about within your career?
Solving problems, it wouldn't matter what industry I was in there are always decisions to be made to try to solve problems.

Proudest career moment so far?

Being recognized as a significant member of the magnetics community and being nominated and appointed to Chair of the UK Magnetics Society.

What do you hope to gain from or bring to The Magnetics Show?

The UkMagSoc is perhaps misnamed in this day and age as we are really across many countries and we are looking to grow our exposure to help more magnetics based communities around the world. In addition I am hoping to support Bunting Magnetics' stand to demonstrate our technical expertise in magnets, magnetic assemblies and magnetising systems. These are all offered from within North America and so we are a vital link in the magnetics supply chain from magnet to application.
