Dr Noel Bristow (Research Fellow at Bangor University)

Dr Noel Bristow

Research Fellow at Bangor University

Dr. Noel Bristow is a Research Fellow at SEECS, Bangor University. Prior to joining Bangor University in 2013 he was managing director of an electronics company manufacturing photovoltaic measurement equipment.

He has a background in computing and embedded electronics design. His current research interests are solar energy, wireless sensor networks and the Internet-of-Things.

Dr. Jeffrey Kettle (Reader in Electronic Engineering at Bangor University)

Dr. Jeffrey Kettle

Reader in Electronic Engineering at Bangor University

Dr. Jeff Kettle is a reader and has been based at SEECS since 2011. During this time, he has acquired substantial grant funding through Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, Interreg, A4B, Ser Cymru and EC projects. He is P-I for Bangor and a workpackage leader for the Swansea-led SPARC-II project (£7m). He runs CLARET (Centre for Lifetime and Reliability Testing) which has worked with over 40 companies identifying failures in products and developing lifetime test protocols. His expertise lies in semiconductor device fabrication, characterization and modelling.

He completed a PhD in nano photonics and electronics in 2008. A number of his research projects and engagement with industries are focused on reliability engineering including root cause analysis (RCA), predictive ageing, reliability modelling and Design of Experiments (DoE).

He also works closely with organic and inorganic chemists to produce functional devices with new materials.

Dr. Zengbo Wang (Senior Lecturer at Bangor University)

Dr. Zengbo Wang

Senior Lecturer at Bangor University

Dr. James Wang is a senior lecturer leading superlens research team at Bangor University School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (SEECS), UK.

His research expertise lies in the fields of nanophotonics, metamaterial and laser processing, with special focuses on super-resolution microscopy, imaging, sensing, laser cleaning and laser processing for industry. He has published more than 150 papers and delivered more than 50 keynote and invited talks, with an H-index 33. He and his team pioneered dielectric superlens made from microspheres (2011), nanoparticles (2016), spider silks (2016), these works were widely publicised in media including BBC, New York Times, and Xinhua China etc. He has a vision to develop superlens for daily use of microsphere users for studying live virus and cells in real time. The team also actively works on other topics in nanophotonics and metamaterials (e.g 'anti-laser' filter), laser material processing (e.g artificial surface, nano-marking) and solar energy, with wide applications in industry.
