Emma is experienced in Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy, Infra-red spectroscopy and Near-infra-red spectroscopy. Emma is currently responsible for the bench top analysis undertaken by Greenwall at Keele University working within the ‘Asbestos in Materials Scheme’ run by the Health and safety Laboratories England.
Appointed as a lecturer at Keele University in 1998 his research is concerned with catalysis by zeolites and nanostructured materials and spectroscopic methods of their characterisation. He is a member of the Research Institute for the Environment, Physical Sciences and Applied Mathematics (EPSAM).
His degree is in food engineering with specialization in spectroscopic techniques for food, pharmaceutical and environmental analysis. He has more than 120 international publications, 20 projects and 4 patents. He is experienced about Raman, NIR, LIBS, SERS, fluorescence spectroscopy and electrochemistry since 1998.
Has a master in chemical criminalistics and a strong personal background in programming. After several years working in forensic consulting and launching various commercial projects He decided two years ago to focus on a new project using a MicroNIR device (the device at the origin of the Asbestoprobe) to detect and quantify illicit drugs.
