Personal profile

Biography

After completing my degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Huddersfield in 1990, I spent a couple of years gaining industrial and managerial experience before return to Huddersfield to undertake a PhD in the area of ‘Performance optimisation of VLSI circuits’. On the successful completion of my PhD in 1995, I continued as a Research Fellow in the area of ‘Mixed signal IC test, using Sigma-Delta ADCs’. After a further 2 years in industry as a Senior Design engineer, developing mixed-signal ICs for mobile phones, I returned once again to Huddersfield, in 1997, as a Senior Lecturer. Over the past 20 years, I developed my teaching in a wide area of subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; mainly in analogue and digital electronics. I’ve been the Course Leader for the undergraduate, IET accredited, MEng/BEng Electronics courses since 2003. My current research interests and project collaboration, cover a wide range of areas, mainly concentrating on the development of signal measurement; non-linear chaos function based ADC development, partial discharge sensor networks, weapon and radiation detection as well as renewable energy. Additional, digital electronics focused research interests are in the area of efficient development and implementation of optical coding schemes through VHDL/FPGA.
