In addition to course leadership and module delivery, Matt is involved with the development of courses on Energy, the Environment and Sustainability as well as programmes involving wider participation of engineering students in Wind Energy technology and design.
After many years in industry, Matt began his academic career in 1999 as a mature student, graduating with BSc Environmental Science from Lancaster University. Research interests led to a PhD in System Identification and Automated Control, quickly followed by post graduate research posts in varied fields from Particle Accelerator Physics to Marine Energy development. Dr Stables joined the School of Engineering at UCLan in 2012 pursuing further interests in Renewable Energy with the post of Project Engineer for a multi-million pound UCLan/ERDF project promoting renewable energy to small and medium sized businesses in the North West UK. At the same time, Matt completed a Masters degree in Wind Energy Engineering. Upon completion of the project, Matt was encouraged to take on course leadership duties for undergraduate Energy Engineering courses and became a full time lecturer in energy related modules.
