Dr Manus Henry

Dr. Manus Henry is Director of the Invensys University Technology Centre for Advanced Instrumentation at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, where he has been a researcher since 1987. From 1990-1993 he was a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford, and from 1997-2002 he was an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow.

The focus of his early research was the development of theory and prototypes of self-validating (SEVA) sensors, a concept formulated at Oxford and which is now the subject of a British Standard (BS-7986:2005) specifying data quality metrics for industrial measurement and control systems.

Dr Henry developed the digital Coriolis mass flow meter, which has been commercialised by Invensys and has won various awards, including best new product at the ISA Show in 2002. Dr Henry won the IEE Control Division’s Achievement Medal in 1999 for his Coriolis work, while the UTC won the 2007 IET/NPL Measurement Prize for Coriolis metering developments. His current focus is on three-phase flow, particularly for the oil and gas industry.

Dr Henry has over fifty patents on self-validating sensors and digital Coriolis flow metering, and has authored over 40 scientific papers. Dr Henry has had a research partnership with Invensys companies since 1987, attracting over £9M funding.
