MEng. Information Engineering (Distinction) (1997-1999)

BEng. (Hons) Communication Engineering (First Class Hons.) (1996-1999)

Background

I completed all my higher education degrees at the University of Plymouth (1996-2003). I was funded by the Overseas Research Students award from the committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of the Universities of the United Kingdom, and a scholarship from the Dean of Technology for my PhD until I was appointed as a permanent member of staff in 2001. Prior to that I (almost) completed my undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering at Ahmadu Bello University (Nigeria {West Africa}, 1991-1996).

Before all that (19xx - 1991) I studied at home on my own for the GCE London Ordinary (1990) and Advanced (1991) level examinations.

Professional membership

 I am associated with the following professional institutions at member and fellow grades
FJSPS (Fellow of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science)
MIEEE (Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers 41322016)
MIET (Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology 32194979)

Research interests

This varies, but is generally (loosely) bounded by the following areas

Communication Theory
Digital Signal Processing 

Error Correction Coding
Information Storage


I have a strong interest in the use and application of DSP techniques within power electronics and have been involved in numerous industrial projects in this area. As a consequence of this interest and approach, I have set up a spin out company in collaboration with the University and Frontier IP Group looking into novel ways to increase the energy output of solar panels.
