Dr Darren Reynolds
Environmental and Biophotonics Applications
Dr Darren Reynolds has a degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Plymouth and a PhD in the application of optical techniques for water analysis from Cranfield University. Darren was a European Union funded research fellow at the National Institute for Resources and Environment, Tsukuba Science City, Japan before taking up a research post at the Engineering Department at the University of Hertfordshire. During this time he has been involved in the development of sensing techniques (optical and solid state) for monitoring aquatic environments and waste water treatment processes.
Darren took up a Senior Lectureship post in Environmental Sciences at UWE on the 1st of January 2000. Recent research is concerned with the development of electrochemical techniques for chemical and biological decontamination, the development of whole cell bio-sensing techniques and the development of optical and imaging techniques for monitoring chemical and biological processes. Darren has managed projects from the NERC, the Home Office (CBRN), The Royal Society and industry.
Darren is currently a Reader in Bio-Sensing Research and the Co-Director for the Centre for Research in Environmental Sciences.
