Seminar Given at CENS, UCLA30th July 2008
I have spent a couple of days in the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the USA. It's been very interesting, and great to see the place where so much excellent WSN research is being done.
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Campus
During the visit, Professor Neil White and I gave a seminar to CENS researchers on 'Energy Aware Remote Sensing', reflecting on the work that is being undertaken by researchers within the Electronic Systems and Devices (ESD) group and the Pervasive Systems Centre (PSC) at Southampton.
Later in the visit, we also give the seminar to researchers at the University of Duke, North Carolina.

Research Featured in New Scientist12th September 2013
Our research into the use of smartphones to for biodiversity monitoring has been featured in New Scientist.
The New Forest Cicada is the only cicada native to the UK and, having not been seen for many years, is at great danger of becoming extinct. One of my PhD students, Davide Zilli, is investigating whether or not the millions of annual visitors to the New Forest National Park can be turned into mobile biodiversity sensors, using the smartphones that they carry with them.
"Biologists lik... [more]
