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.
The conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia
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 at Southampton in 1998. It was also one of the first conferences that I attended as a PhD student back in 2005!
Most notabley, it will be the first time that the conference has ventured outside of the UK and Ireland, this time being held in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The conference will take place between the 16-18 September 2013.
My talk is titled "New tricks with old sensors: pervasive technologies for novel applications", watch this space for more information!

Sam Presents Poster at EH 20117th February 2011
At this year's Energy Harvesting Network conference, Hui Huang (Sam) presented his poster on the topic of "A Feasibility Study on Body-Worn Inertial Energy Harvesting during Walking and Running". The conference, held at Savoy Place (home of the IET in central London), had over 100 attendees; Sam was able to discuss his research with all those interested.
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.
