Dave Hughes

A high-growth entrepreneur and physicist, Dr Dave Hughes has over 12 years’ experience researching ultrasound for medical, dental and industrial applications. During his time as a Research Fellow at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), Dave invented Novosound’s core IP which led to the creation of Novosound in April 2018 – the first spin-out company to emerge from UWS.

Dave Hughes has developed from an academic to a successful company director, overseeing the technical direction and vision of Novosound. Under his leadership, Novosound has grown rapidly to become an award-winning global business, working across diverse industry sectors and markets including oil & gas, aerospace, energy and medical. Dave holds a visiting professorship at UWS and was named Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland Director of the Year 2020 in the start-up category. 

Since 2018 Novosound has grown from six people to 30+. Key customers have included international energy company Uniper and, in the aerospace sector, BAE Systems and GE Aviation.

More recently, Novosound has doubled revenues for the last 3 consecutive years, and taken exciting steps in the wearable and healthcare sector with work in the dental imaging market and a digital healthcare R&D project with a Nasdaq-listed tech group.
