Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering



Danny obtained a First Degree in Physics from the University of Nottingham in 2015. His final year project was on compressed sensing in dynamic imaging for magnetic resonance imaging machines. The project involved developing algorithms to improve the speed and accuracy of the acquisition process by utilising the physical nature of spin decay signals.

He is now working on his PhD in manufacturing metrology at Nottingham, developing a new camera based micro-coordinate measurement machine.
