Four new lecturers in areas relevant to sensing have been appointed with effect of 1 October 2017.

Department of Engineering

Phillip Stanley-Marbell
University Lecturer in the Internet of Things

p stanley marbell

Phillip and his group work at the interface between the physical world and that of computing systems. A key research interest is to reduce the power consumption of sensors and sensor related devices, such as displays. Prototype hardware is designed, tested and made available open-source.

Ozgur Akan

University Lecturer in the Internet of Things

o akan
Ozgur approaches the Internet of Things from a very different approach to Phillip. Ozgur is interested not only in the Internet of Things but also in naturally occuring networks, using concepts found in nature to solve technical problems. His research includes
  • communications and sensor networks
  • bio-inspired nano, molecular, and neural communications
  • distributed social sensing
  • signal processing and information theory
  • next-generation ICT-inspired health care devices

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

Róisín Owens
University Lecturer

r owens
Róisín heads the new Bio-electronic Systems Technologies group in the Department. Her groups is workin at the interface between biology and engineering, e.g. developing biological models and the electronic devices in parallel to improve drug discovery and therapeutics. Róisín and her team are very multidisciplinary with expertise including ranging from biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology on the bio side, to materials science, electronics and chemistry on the physical sciences and engineering side.

Department of Computer Science

Amanda Prorok
University Lecturer

Amanda's research interest are multi-robot systems, from algorithms to abstraction. Sensor technologies, of-course,  is key to enable robots to move autonomously, e.g. in a warehouse.
