Dr. Ben De Lacy Costello completed a PhD in the fabrication of gas sensors targetted to detect microbial spoilage of stored foodstuffs. I have almost 20 years experience of volatile analysis particularly the linking of volatiles to disease states. I also have extensive experience in the production of gas sensors and sensor array systems for the detection of volatiles associated with disease states.

I work with Professor Norman Ratcliffe and Dr Rick Ewen at UWE. We have strong collaborative links with Professor Chris Probert (http://www.liv.ac.uk/translational-medicine/staff/chris-probert/), University of Liverpool (previously University of Bristol)

I also have over 10 years experience in the area of chemical computing and unconventional/non-classical computing. I collaborate with Professor Andrew Adamatzky and Professor Larry Bull at UWE. We have an Unconventional computing Group (https://uncomp.uwe.ac.uk/)
