Personal profile

Biography

Andrew Moore received his BSc in Engineering Science and PhD in Optical Metrology from Loughborough University in 1988 and 1992 respectively. From 1992 to 1997 he worked at the Centro de Investigaciones en Optica, Mexico. He joined Heriot-Watt University in 1997 and is currently a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He was an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow (October 2000 to September 2005) and is currently an AWE William Penney Fellow (August 2006 to March 2011). His research interests include dynamic, full-field optical instrumentation and its application to engineering measurement, fringe pattern analysis and thermal forming.

Research interests

Andrew Moore leads the Optical Diagnostics group at Heriot-Watt University. Optical diagnostic techniques provide greater understanding and control of scientific, biological and engineering systems. Light adds no extra mass or stiffness to the structure under test and measurements can be made at many points simultaneously under service conditions. We research novel optical techniques for measuring deformation, vibration, shape and fluid flow. Jointly with our collaborators, we apply these techniques to unique measurement problems in science and engineering. The group works closely with industry including AWE, Renishaw, BAE Systems.
