Personal profile

Biography

I joined Huddersfield at the end of summer 2017 as the Professor of Communications Systems Engineering.  My remit is to build a communications research activity driven by the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things.  I am also tasked with developing external collaborations that will enable the development of the research profile of the Department.

Prior to joining Huddersfield, I was briefly the Head of Electronics and Maths at the University of Derby, and before that spent nearly 10 years running my own consultancy business working at the interface between academia and the commercial world.  My work here spanned a wide array of activity including, for example, leading academic engagement for HPC Wales and leading university owned commercial operations.   Between 2003 and 2007 I worked for Bangor University as both a Professor and as Technical Director for the Centre for Advanced Software Technology -  as a part of this role I established and led a software development office in Singapore.

Between 2000 and 2003 I held a range of commercial roles in start-up ventures and was Research Director at Marconi Wireless.  Before that I held an academic role at University College London where I became a Reader in 1999.

I have published around 100 papers and filed 8 Patents in the areas of optical communications, fibre-radio systems, and circuit/system design.

My current research interests are focused on communications technologies that will support the deployment of the Industrial Internet of Things.  This gives me the scope to look at almost anything of interest to me including technologies that will support high bandwidth connectivity for mobile devices, high bandwidth access and core technologies, networking technologies and system design.  I am also developing an interest in analysing data.
