Steven Gibney

Postgraduate Research Student,



Steven is a 3rd year CDT student whose project focuses on the development of a sensor which could be used to monitor drug dose in vivo.

Before starting the PhD Steven enjoyed four years at the University of Leeds where he graduated with a 2:1 in Pharmacology and a Masters in Bioscience (Distinction). After developing his academic skills he was able to put them to use as a research technician where he worked within the Millner Research Group focusing on electrochemistry and the modification of surfaces for biosensors. After this he went on to work with Roboscientific where he helped develop chemical sensors using polymer composites. Now Steven combines his knowledge of electrochemistry with his experience working with sensors to develop novel sensing technologies.

Away from the lab Steven enjoys spending time outdoors and on the weekend can usually be found lost in the woods or wandering up a mountain.

Expertise Summary

Steven's research interest is in the field of bioelectronics and biosensor development, focusing primarily on the use of bioelectronics as an avenue for developing novel therapeutic strategies. He works to address the question of how we can design bioelectronic devices to improve current healthcare approaches as well as develop new treatments. His experience has been multidisciplinary and has thus far involved the development of biomaterials, analytical electrochemistry and materials analysis.
