Sam presents at INSS 201213th June 2012
Today, Sam presented his paper at the EnHaNSS (Algorithms and Concepts for Networked Sensing Systems Powered by Energy Harvesters) Workshop at INSS (International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems) 2012. Sam's paper was titled Design of a linearized magnetic spring for body-worn inertial energy harvesters, and was well received by the audience.
Sam and his cocktail concoction
The conference banquet included a competition to see who could create the best cocktail. Congratulations for to Sam for being the undisputed winner for creating the worst cocktail (pictured here)!
Sam's talk was also accompanied by two talks from me: the keynote presentation and a paper on our research on supercapacitor modelling.

Two Papers Accepted for Publication in IEEE Transactions26th September 2011
We have recently had two papers related to our work on Energy Harvesting electronics accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems. Both publications are a result of the EPSRC project on 'Holistic Energy Harvesting'.
The first paper, 'Accurate Supercapacitor Modeling for Energy-Harvesting Wireless Sensor Nodes' investigates supercapacitors, often used in energy-harvesting wireless sensor nodes (EH-WSNs) to store harvested energy. Until now, research into the use of... [more]
Keynote Speaker at Sensors & their Applications XVII19th July 2012
I have been invited to speak at the Institute of Physics' biennial conference on Sensors and their Applications. The seventeenth in the series of conferences on Sensors & their Applications (S&A XVII) will be hosted outside of the UK and Ireland for the first time in Dubrovnik, Croatia in September 2013.
This will be the 17th occurance of the conference, having began in Manchester in 1983 and included the first of the highly successful Eurosensors conference at Cambridge in 1987 and a... [more]
