Rob is a principle research scientist at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) with over 15 years of experience in non-contact infra-red radiation thermometry. Currently leading thermal imaging metrology research at NPL.
Rob’s PhD studies involved the development of new and novel reference standards for diagnostic medical thermal imaging (organic and alloy based in field of view reference systems) from which sources were patented, licensed and commercialised.
The recent work Rob has undertaken, has focused on the application and exploitation of thermal imaging where absolute confidence in quantitative data is required, applying thermal imaging to an extensive range of applied measurement challenges (industrial, aerospace, nuclear and healthcare), and the development of bespoke measurement solutions (calibration and validations systems, methodologies etc.)
