Personal profile

Overview

I graduated with BSc (Joint Honours) in Electronics and Mathematics from Keele University in 1994, and a PhD in Telecommunications from the University of Portsmouth in 1998. I worked for one year as a Research Associate. I was a lecturer and International Coordinator of the Faculty of Technology, University of Portsmouth and have recently joined UWS as Assistant Dean International in the School of Engineering and COmputing. I'm a Visiting Professor at the University of Perlis, Malaysia.

Area of academic expertise - outline

  • Advanced experimental system development for wireless wideband channel studies
  • Indoor and outdoor wireless channel measurement and modelling
  • Channel fading mitigation for fixed and mobile wireless communication systems
  • Wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks and mesh networks
  • Impact of vegetation on radio waves
  • Ambient information aggregation and management for resource management and security
  • Rainfall modelling and prediction for application in telecommunications, water resource management and flood prediction

I have organised and co-organised many conferences at both national and international levels. These include: IADAT International Conference on Telecommunications and Computer Networks, IADAT-tcn2005, IADAT-tcn2006 and UK URSI National Symposium 2007. I have also chaired many sessions at national and international conferences and published more than 50 research papers.

Current research activities

My research focuses on wideband wireless communication, channel characterisation and wideband wireless propagation experimental systems. I have worked for several years on the characterisation of communication transhorizon, line of sight, indoor, outdoor and through vegetation channels. My current research focuses on wireless sensor networks and mesh networks for applications in precision agriculture, environmental monitoring, behavioural economics, security, building control and energy management, etc.
