R. Haylett PhD,C.Eng,MIET
to my site. This site outlines my main interests including my CV
and details of my research.
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
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.
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
research has involved analysis of ambulatory oesophageal manometry
- Analysis of ambulatory oesophageal pH recordings.
Research– Functional analysis of
oesophageal clearance from 24 hour ambulatory pH recordings
comparing patients with Barrett’s oesophagus and healthy
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. See Latest Research for For further
you are looking for help, either consultancy,
assistance with grant applications/reviews etc or have a potential
