Although my academic background is in the biological sciences I have been working with electronics since 1980.

In 1992 I began working at the Pain Relief Foundation in Liverpool and remained with them for 12 years. During this time I learned a great deal about biomedical electronics, worked with various devices for creating sensory stimuli and recording physiological signals, and developed several devices of my own design. I was also fortunate enough to be able to work with some of the most brilliant and knowledgeable people in the field of sensory neuroscience.

In 2004 I decided to go it alone and set up Dancer Design, with the aim of designing and building equipment principally for researchers in neuroscience and psychology, as well as pursuing some of my own projects and inventions.

My skills and knowledge include analog and audio electronics, digital electronics, computer interfacing, robotics, sensors, data acquisition, embedded microcontrollers, PCB design, LabVIEW programming, mechanical actuators, pneumatics, tactile psychophysics, MRI- and MEG-compatible devices, medical device safety regulations, transcutaneous nerve stimulation, physiological monitoring, Palm PDA programming, electronic music.
I pride myself on being able to find elegant and sometimes unusual solutions to interesting problems.
