Stewart is a lecturer in the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. He is based in the Institute for Bioengineering. Stewart recently completed an RCUK fellowship which involved the development of collaborative research at the interface between Engineering and the Life Sciences. This is still a major area of interest, as is the design and manufacture of integrated microsystems, and the development of microelectronic test structures.
Stewart has developed MSc programmes in Bioelectronics and Biosensors, and he currently teaches courses in biosensors and instrumentation. In 2012 Stewart co-authored a a textbook based on these courses, "Introductory Bioelectronics for Engineers and Physical Scientists."
Beyond the day job, Stewart is keenly interested in outreach activities, most recently helping to mentor a team of secondary school students in the development of a “bionic arm”, which went on to win the top prize in the EDT Engineering Education Scheme in 2012.
