George is a Research Associate working towards the Design and Fabrication of Small Inspection Robots at the University of Leeds. He holds an MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering and, through his PhD he developed “Miniature Magnetic Robots for the Inspection of Unpiggable Pipelines”. He has worked on a variety of small in-pipe robotic systems for use in a range of environments and applications such as borehole deployment, wireless power transfer, and inspection of the National Transmission System. George is currently investigating the traction and locomotion methods that Pipebots can use to move freely about the networks, as well as the miniaturisation of traditional robot chassis designs.
