Departmental Superintendent

Shonah Ion

Lancaster University

Physics Building



Tel: +44 1524 593650


As superintendent I have responsibility for the fabric of the building and supervising the technical staff. I am also, as area safety officer, responsible for safety in the Department, in liaison with the University Safety Office. In addition I work part of the week in the Department's Electronics Workshop. In my absence please contact the Deputy Superintendent.

I joined the department in 1984 as a trainee and, having completed my training throughout all sections of the department (mechanical workshop, low temperature physics, photography etc), settled in the electronics workshop. In 1988 I gained an HNC in Applied Physics and Electronics.

In the Electronics Workshop I work with Stephen Holt and John Statter making and mending equipment for teaching and research use throughout the department. I have particular responsibility for electrical testing and safety, working with electrical maintenance staff.

Other Interests and Hobbies

Away from work my interests include photography, natural history, fitness training and touring Britain.
