Areas of expertise
I am an expert in mobile communications and have pioneered many techniques both experimental and theoretical in propagation modelling and network coverage, linear modulation techniques, linearised RF power amplifiers, WCDMA for 3G, SMART/MIMO antennas and WLANs.
Personally interested in propagation modelling, base-band signal processing and RF/microwave technologies and together with colleagues am very interested in the design of communication systems. I am interested in applying wireless communication technologies to many application areas including: Home Networks, Smart Grid and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).
I lead the World-wide University Network (WUN) for the Wireless Communications Exemplar and the University of Bristol Communications Theme.
I am Director of the Centre for Communications Research at the University of Bristol.
I am mentor to various start-up companies in ICT.
Numerous national and international TV and Radio interviews (e.g. BBC and ITV appearing on programmes such as ‘Points West’, ‘PM’ and ‘Today’; ABC TV (Australia), etc.). I also regularly give interviews to national and international technical journals, newspapers and general interest journals. High-profile keynote lectures such as the IET ‘Lord Nelson of Stafford Lecture’ 2003 (Engineering Management Section) and the Brunel 200 lecture.
