Biography

I graduated from Manchester University in 1983 with an Honours Degree in Physics. I then went on to obtain my PhD in Physics from the same institution in 1987. In 1988 I joined the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Salford as a Research Officer in the area of Robotics. I am now a senior lecturer in the Computing, Science & Engineering School at the University of Salford and have been teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students for 18 years in the areas of digital electronics, communications, networking and optoelectronics. I am involved in Network and Communications research with an interest in optical and sensor network systems.
