Biography:
Keith started in electrical metrology in 1979 initially working on the standard of capacitance with a calculable capacitor and later developing the New Zealand quantum Hall standard for resistance.  From 1994-1996 he helped the electricity supply industry establish codes of practice for energy metering and provided the first proficiency testing scheme for energy meter calibration.  He is participating in the current review of requirements for metering being carried out by the Electricity Commission.

He gained a wider experience of metrology as MSL Director from 2000-2008,  including a 3 year period as Chairperson of the Asia Pacific Metrology Programme.  This experience has enabled him more recently to contribute to a review of the metrology system in Chile and to an APEC project on metrology in chemistry.
