Dr Eynon was reassigned to work in the Harrogate area, and started his research under Professor Tim Tozer in the Department of Electronics at the University of York in 1992, completing a DPhil in 1997 with his thesis “Coarse Synchronization Techniques for the Rapid Acquisition of Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum Signals”. Also during this time, Dr Eynon played the viola in Leeds Symphony and West Riding Opera.
Since 1997, Dr Eynon has lived in Texas. He worked in the Digital Signal Processors division of Texas Instruments, in Houston, and then moved to Dallas to work for Raytheon E-Systems, primarily on the automatic detection and identification of radar signals. Since 2002, he has been with Innovative Signal Analysis, applying his academic expertise and broad experience to a variety of defence-related projects.
Dr Eynon and his wife live in a solar powered house of their own design, with their four herding dogs. In addition to the viola, Dr Eynon enjoys running, beekeeping, swing dancing, astronomy, and travel.
Alan has been a continuous and loyal supporter of the University of York for over ten years, and set up one of the first legacy gifts to the University, to support science and engineering students who wish to broaden their education by spending a year at a university in the USA.
