Liam gained a first class MEng degree (with honours) in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in 2007. He studied for his PhD ‘Electromagnetic Tomography and People Screening’ at the University of Manchester. In 2011 he took up the post of Research Associate at the University of Manchester. In 2018 Liam was appointed as a Lecturer in Embedded Systems in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester.

Liam’s research includes many aspects of metal detection and characterisation, magnetic induction spectroscopy/tomography, signal processing, remote sensing and security. In the past he has also worked in bio-impedance, an area in which he maintains an active interest.

In recent years Liam's research has focused on the detection and characterisation of landmines (including explosive remnants of warfare), and the development of magnetic sensing systems for polar regions.
