Further details of research projects and publications (downloads) can be found on my York Research Database page and on the Applied Electromagnetics and devices Web pages.
My research interests include:
I review for a number of Electromagnetics journals including IEEE Transaction on Electromagnetic Compatibility, and Microwave Theory and Techniques.
I am a member of the technical program committee for the EMC Europe conference series.
I am a member of Centre for Energy Efficient Materials.
I currently teach:
I have taught courses at undergraduate, and graduate level and courses for industry on a wide range of topics including:
I also enjoy looking after a range of student projects that reflect my research, teaching and interests in embedded systems, analogue electronics, and electromagnetics.
I am currently:
During my time at York I have undertaken the following administrative posts in the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology:
I left school at 16 and undertook a technician apprenticeship with the MOD at RNSD Copenacre near Bath where I gained an ONC and a HNC in Electrical Engineering. After completing my apprenticeship I was in the first entry of students to the Electronics course at the University of York. During the summers I returned to the MOD or worked for a small electronics company in Daventry.
During my period as a student I set up a small electronics company, with a friend from the MOD apprenticeship. After completing my Bachelor's degree I stayed on as a research assistant at York to study for my PhD and work on HF communications. I also worked to build the company and began working in PD Electronics full time after I finished my PhD project.
After working on industrial systems for a few years at PD Electronics I found I missed the research environment and returned to York as a Lecturer in Electronics and began my research in Electromagnetic compatibility.
I occasionally act as a consultant for Eurofins York (formerly York EMC Services), where I also deliver courses for industry on Electromagnetic Compatibility and related topics.
Previously I have worked as a consultant for the now defunct York Electronics center on the development of custom electronic systems for industrial applications.
