Dr Berthaume is a lecturer in the Division of Mechanical Engineering and Design. He started his tenure at LSBU in the fall of 2019. Prior to LSBU, he was a research associate at Imperial College London, University of Durham, Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology, and University of Hull. With degrees and research experience in both anthropology and engineering, his work has focused on the creation/establishment of the field of anthroengineering. He has hosted several symposia on the subject, and has established Berthaume Anthroengineering (BAE) labs at LSBU to develop the subject.
Nick is responsible for the mechanical engineering workshop; co-ordinating demonstration, supervision and tuition on a range of common workshop machine tools and precision measurement devices.
Andrew lectures in industrial design and works with students to foster a creative and professional attitude to an industry that is constantly evolving due to societal and technological change.
Dr. Jim Ingram graduated with a degree in Applied Chemistry from Brunel University in 1989. He then Joined the Explosion and Fire Research Group at London South Bank University and was awarded a PhD in the development of instrumentation for and investigation of residual fuel oil flammability hazards in ships bunker tanks in 1995. Subsequently he took a post as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow within the EFRG and has been involved in a number of projects both conducting research and producing safety guidance on behalf of a number of organisations.
Robin's interest is focused on the emergent multi-disciplinary practices in product design, centred on the user-centric design and the factors appertaining to product success.
Dr Ben Lishman teaches solid mechanics, finite element analysis, and engineering principles. As a researcher, he is interested in the material properties and solid mechanics of ice, in the Arctic and elsewhere.
Shymal has a background in automated system, followed by an MSc in Real Time System. He has many years of experience in NDT research projects. His research interests are in automated NDT, control systems and mechatronics. He teaches mechatronics and control across mechanical courses.
Susana is a designer, researcher and lecturer. Her work often explores future technological implications for public engagement and awareness. This includes developing collaborative frameworks between design and other disciplines.
Ravee Sundararajan has a broad ranging teaching and research background and has worked on a variety of projects both in industry and academia. He is a Senior Lecturer in Mechanical and Advanced Vehicle Engineering programme.
Barney Townsend's teaches on Design Methods, CAD, and Prototyping, and his research explores novel CAD interfaces and future applications for additive manufacturing technologies.
