Research Interests

Originally from the Isle of Man, Steve came to Lancaster to study the MEng in Mechatronics. After graduation he moved to Cambridge for the Advanced Course in Design Manufacture and Management, before returning to Lancaster to start his research career. Research interests are in renewable energy, particularly tidal energy devices where he has been working on improvements to vertical axis designs. As well as engineering, he regularly plays percussion. Steve is a member of the Renewable Energy Group he is a College Tutor for The County College and Undergraduate Admissions tutor for the Engineering Department.
