Kevin R. Haylett PhD,C.Eng,MIET

Welcome to my site. This site outlines my main interests including my CV and details of my research.

In brief -

I received my B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Electronics from the University of Salford, UK in 1984. In 1994 I started collaborating with the University Department of Surgery (Manchester University) and the hospitals Gastro-Intestinal Investigations Unit. I received my M.Sc. from the University of Manchester in 1996 and completed my Ph.D. in the development and analysis of oesophageal fluoromanometry (2000). I have considerable experience in Medical Engineering Research and Management gained while working as a Principal Clinical Scientist at Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospital NHS Trust. I am a member of the IET, Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Association of GI Physiologists.

My main scientific interests include the identification and detection of patterns in complex data. Complexity in physiology, modelling of physiological systems, scientific visualisation and the application of neural networks, signal processing and statistics to medical, biological and other problems. Recent research has involved analysis of ambulatory oesophageal manometry - Analysis of ambulatory oesophageal pH recordings.

Latest ResearchFunctional analysis of oesophageal clearance from 24 hour ambulatory pH recordings comparing patients with Barrett’s oesophagus and healthy controls

This work takes a new look at pH signals and extracts functional information regarding swallowing performance. First clearance curves are extracted from 24 hour pH recordings these are then fitted to a formal model of clearance. These are then compared between between two groups.

 If you are looking for help, either consultancy, assistance with grant applications/reviews etc or have a potential position that I may be interested in please don't hesitate to contact me.
