CENSIS Adds to Its Subsea Team

CENSIS, the Scottish Innovation Centre for Sensor and Imaging Systems, has expanded its technical offering for the subsea, offshore and marine sectors with the appointment of two industry experts.

Dr Graham Kerr has joined CENSIS as its technical director, while Leo Meng has been recruited as an embedded systems engineer.

Dr Kerr arrives from FMC Technologies, where he managed the optoelectronics research and development (R&D) team.

Meanwhile, Meng comes from Aker Solutions where he worked as a wireless systems engineer.

Ian Reid, chief executive of CENSIS, said: “The subsea industry continues to go through a challenging time, but the opportunities for innovation have seldom been better. The research groups available to the North Sea are global leaders in their fields, with expertise ranging from ultrasonic engineering all the way through to nanoscale engineering.

“In Graham and Leo we have two experts who understand the industry, the problems it faces, and the technology that can help drive efficiency. They are a great addition to our subsea and offshore specialist, Dr Rachael Wakefield, and we’re thrilled to have them on board.”
