Kris completed an apprenticeship with British Telecom before attending Northumbria University. Here he received a BSc(Hons) in Communications & Electronic Engineering and a MSc in Microelectronic Engineering.
In 2006 he joined Newcastle University to complete an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) with sponsorship from Dyson. His research focused on Power Supply Quality in Brushless Drives. After completing the doctorate Kris has moved into a Teaching Fellowship at Newcastle University. His research interests are mainly in permanent magnet machine design.In his spare time Kris enjoys participating in adventure races: kayaking, cycling, running and orienteering.
