Harry Wood

Research Associate

Email: hw283@bath.ac.uk

After growing up in Oxfordshire and a year out to tour the globe Harry moved to Bath for a degree in physics.  Embracing student life, he enjoyed as many of the university’s societies as possible, from kayaking to ballroom dancing.  In the end his hunger for challenge and purpose made the transition to a PhD with the Proteus collaboration a natural one.

His role in the project involved designing, fabricating, and testing powerful new optical fibres for endoscopy using a 2000-degree furnace, lasers, and passion!  Since graduating in 2018 I have been working as a research associate, using my practical skills to further develop the group’s optical technologies and build them into clinic-ready tools.

When the day’s done and tools are down, Harry likes to unwind with a walk or swim, cook something hearty, and play games with friends.
