Professor Janice Kiely






Janice graduated from Sheffield University with a BEng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering and completed a PhD from Cardiff University in 1992. Her PhD involved the development of novel, miniature thermoelectric devices which could be used for passive IR detection.

For a short time after her PhD, Janice was an engineering specialist at Mewburn Ellis (patent agents) in London and in this capacity was involved in patent prosecution and litigation.

Subsequently, Janice joined the University of the West of England, Bristol as a lecturer specialising in measurement and instrumentation. She has applied this expertise across a number of research fields including power systems and semiconductor device design. 

Janice's key research interest involves the development of novel bio-sensing instrumentation.  Current key research project areas include the development of immunoassay based measurement system using paramagnetic particles as labels.

Currently Janice is Head of Research and Knowledge Exchange in Bristol Institute of Technology and Director of the Institute of Bio-Sensing Technology.
