Darren spent eight years working in the electronics industry in service, production and design roles. He designed the TD201 Digital Storage Adapter for Thandar Electronics Ltd (1987) and developed the TA320 Logic Analyser for TTi Ltd (1992). He received a B.Eng (Hons) and Dip.Eng (Hull) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Hull. His 15 year academic career has included roles for Bournemouth University, Bradford University (United Arab Emirates) and the University of Lincoln. He is currently Course Director for the BA in Industrial Design & Technology at Brunel University and a member of the Cleaner Electronics Research Group. He has been involved in the development of a number of successful undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes and the coordination of industrial placements for undergraduate students. He has also been responsible for the coordination and development of International and Erasmus exchange programmes. Teaching responsibilities have included module delivery to both engineering and design students. He has been an investigator on grants awarded by the EU, EPSRC and PARK. Darren’s primary research over the past four years has been the development of printed power sources and he has been PI on two EPSRC (IeMRC) grants in this area. Recent research outputs include two patents and four journal publications in printed electronics. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Circuit Technology (F.Inst.CT), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a member of the IET (MIET). He earned a PhD entitled ‘The Design And Fabrication of Printed Batteries and Low Power Indicator Displays Using The Offset Lithographic Printing Process’.
