Dr Ian Hosier

Research Staff

  My interest in Science and Technology began at an early age; I recieved my first electronics kit at the age of 12, begun experimenting with motors and generators at 14 and built my first solar panel when I started college.  More formally, I took the degree of Physics with Subsidiary Mathematics at the University of Reading, graduating with honours in 1992.  I then went on to take a PhD exploring the morphology and dielectric properties of polymer blends under Prof. Alun Vaughan, graduating in 1996.    Following this I went on to do a period of postgraduate training from 1996 to 2001 at the same institution.  I then left the UK and worked for almost two years at Florida State University under Prof. Rufina Alamo looking at polypropylene crystallisation and morphology using Atomic Force Microscopy.  Upon my return to the UK in 2003 I once again linked up with Prof. Alun Vaughan and started my current post at Southampton.  I have since worked on a variety of projects spanning from liquid to solid based insulation systems and during this time I have designed and constructed various items of test equipment to support my research most of which are available for general use by other researchers; major examples being DC and AC electrical breakdown rigs, an electrical ageing rig with in-situ monitoring capability, an electrical treeing rig incorporating an integrated partial discharge measurement system, an apparatus for measuring thermal and electrical conductivity and a pulsed electro-acoustic (PEA) system to measure space charge distribution in solid dielectrics. I have also had the oppertunity to supervise numerous undergraduate project and PhD students, many of whom have sucessfully published thier work in journals and conference proceedings.   I am currently working (80 %) on a project with a major utilities company looking at dielectric materials whilst the remaining 20 % of my time is spent working for the school - currently this involves running the new high voltage teaching laboratory which was opened in June 2012 to support the practical element of the MSc course in Energy and Sustainability .  I see publication as a vital and neccessary part of research and have written over 50 journal and conference papers in the field of polymers, ageing and dielectrics as well as contributed to a book on Polymer Chemistry.

  My hobbies are equally varied and diverse; on TV I like to watch documentaries, football, science fiction and Formula 1 fan.  I like to experiment with both electronic and mechanical systems and I am currently exploring embedded microcontrollers and digital sampling techniques.  In addition I have been looking into the Raspberry Pi mini-computer and am currently learning COMSOL, a computer modelling package and hope to start leaerning Matlab in the near future.  Despite my deep interest in all things technical, I am also deeply spiritual at heart and am a committed member of my local church where I run the audio-visual equipment and publish the monthly magazine.
