WiSE Project Day12th November 2008
WiSE held it's first 'Project Day', an intensive one-day problem-based exercise for PhD students in ECS that are researching wireless sensing related topics. Ten students took part in an intensive day which ran from 8am to 7pm! Two teams were formed, one of which was tasked with developing a piece of clinical equipment (in response to a request from a Surgeon at the local University Hospital), while the other was required to develop a sensor network to monitor our building.

The exercise promoted a wealth of discussion between researchers, and also provided everybody with a great opportunity to familiarise themselves with sensor network hardware and develop practical and problem-solving skills. The following day saw presentations from both teams, who demonstrated that they had developed solutions to their respective problems. The event was a great success, entirely thanks to the efforts of those who took part, with many requests for a similar event to be held in the future... Watch this space!
WiSE (Wireless Sensing in ECS) is an interest group bringing together researchers in ECS. WiSE operates as part of the sensor networks research theme of the PSC. WiSE addresses the 'sensor networks' research theme by bringing together researchers with a common interest in wireless sensing and sensor networks.

PRiME featured on Cover of New Electronics14th October 2014
We were recently interviewed by the New Electronics magazine, who was interested in our research on the PRiME (Power and Reliability in Many-core Embedded systems) project. As a result, it was featured as a cover-story in the 14 October 2014 issue.
Specifically to me, the article comments:
A future challenge for many core systems is that application developers will face architectures that are changing all the time and it is unrealistic to expect them to alter their code constantly to deal ... [more]
22 Lectures Delivered in Malaysia!28th October 2013
I have just returned from a fortnight's intensive teaching visit to the University of Southampton's Malaysia Campus (USMC), at EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya.
ECS welcomed our inital intake of 10 students onto our top-quality Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) degree course, which has been offered for the first time this autumn at USMC. The EEE degree joins Southampton's undergraduate MEng in Mechanical Engineering that enrolled its first students at USMC in 2012.
Our four year 2+2 MEng... [more]
