Short Bio

Last comments


I am a physicist specialising in instrumentation. At the University of Bath I work on developing open source instrumentation in collaboration with collaborators in the Global South. My core project is the OpenFlexure microscope, a laboratory-grade open-source microscope. The core focus of this work is to enable manufacturers to produce it as an in-vitro diagnostic device. Alongside microscope development I am helping develop the open source software toolchain that is needed to transition open hardware toward production. For examply, I develop GitBuilding a program for hardware documentation. Prior to my work in the open hardware community I worked on experiments ranging from blue skies measurements of the Universal Constant of Gravitation, to practical mass metrology at the milligram level.
