Professor Martyn Hill is Professor of Electromechanical Systems within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Martyn graduated in 1985 from the Institute of sound and Vibration Research at Southampton University. He then moved to the mechanical engineering department where he carried out research into parameter estimation techniques for noninvasive biomedical measurement and later took part in the development of automotive sensors. He was appointed lecturer in 1990 and is now a Professor in the Electro-Mechanical Research Group.

Martyn’s current research interests include

Martyn has provided consultancy advice for about 20 companies, including acting as an expert witness in the Royal Courts of Justice. He is a chartered engineer, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Member of the Institute of Measurement and Control and a member of the Institute of Acoustics.

Research interests

  • ultrasonics & underwater acoustics
  • acoustic radiation forces, particularly in MEMS
  • instrumentation

Research group

Mechatronics Engineering Group

Research project(s)

Application of ultrasound standing wave fields for augmentation of cartilage bioengineering strategies

Application of novel acoustic trapping perfusion bioreactor to generate 3-D co-culture system for modelling tumour microenvironment interactions

Application of Data Fusion techniques in identification of sub-clinical Polysomnographic events in children with Sleep Disordered Breathing

In collaboration with the Welcome Trust Children hospital in Southampton and the School of Medicine at Southampton University, we aim to study the effects of obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) ins children and develop/improve methods for automatic detection of such abnormality.

Blocking blood supply to starve cancerous tumours

Microfluidic technology can potentially provide a platform for evaluation of clinical and patient-specific features for cancer therapy, while as an alternative to animal models to reduce the amount of animal tests.
