He then spent some time as a basic grade pharmacist at the Royal Free Hospital, London, before returning to Cardiff University to commence a PhD investigating the development of solution pressurised metered dose inhaler systems.

Peter joined Aston University, Birmingham as a Lecturer, subsequently Senior Lecturer, in Pharmaceutics in 2002. He led the Inhalation Technology Research Team, published several original research papers and has a patent in the area of pulmonary drug delivery. Peter also served as a member of the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences Inhalation Focus Group steering committee, and co-organised a number of symposia and conferences in the area of inhalation science.

Following a few years pursuing personal interests, Peter returned to academia, joining the University of Birmingham as Deputy Head of Pharmacy, developing a new integrated MPharm degree. Recently, Peter has been appointed Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Head of the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire.
