I have successfully supervised 4 PhD students to completion and I am currently supervising 8 Doctorate Students (PhDs and DBAs). I have also supervised many full-time and part-time BEng final year projects from the University of Derby’s students and a number of MSc projects from students from the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), The University of Warwick. Many of these projects have had practical application in both local and international companies such as Rolls-Royce, Bombardier, Lubrizol, etc.
