EXPERIENCE

Richard has over 25 years of experience in the field of radiation safety. He has previously worked at the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) and the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England) in the UK. He frequently communicates his results in electromagnetic safety at international  conferences and workshops. Richard is a consulting expert for the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES). He has previously been a member of the Royal Society of Canada’s Expert Committee on Electromagnetics and the Health Protection Agency’s Expert Group on MRI. Richard is also a member of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, the European Bioelectromagnetics Association and the European Alliance for Innovation.

KNOWLEDGE

Electromagnetic fields can be both measured and modelled by Richard. He writes his own computer programs, in FORTRAN and C++, to model the interaction of electromagnetic fields with biological tissues. He has developed complex computer models of humans and animals to facilitate these calculations. The result of these calculations are internal dose quantities such as induced electric fields or SAR, which can be directly compared with the ICNIRP basic restrictions or EMF Directive 2013/35/EU and Control of Electromagnetic Field At Work Regulations 2016 exposure limit values. He also uses state-of-the-art measurement equipment to assess electromagnetic fields. As a result, comparisons can be made with the action levels in the EMF Directive 2013/35/EU / Control of Electromagnetic Field At Work Regulations 2016 and reference levels in the ICNIRP guidelines.

QUALIFICATIONS

Richard earned a BEng(Hons) degree in Engineering along with MSc masters degrees in Advanced Systems & Technology from the University of Liverpool and Advanced Computational Methods from Imperial College. In 1997 he obtained his PhD in Physics studying electromagnetics and magneto-optics. A keen runner, Richard is married and currently lives with his family in Oxfordshire, UK.
