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.
The EEE Students and I at USMC
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 EEE degree will see the students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two years. The EEE programme at USMC is identical to that offered at the Southampton campus, including the duplication of the outstanding ECS undergraduate laboratory facilities in Malaysia. As well as core EEE staff based at USMC, many other academic staff from Southampton will be visiting USMC over the coming year to teach on the course.
At the campus, I gave 22 lectures to students in 9 days, primarily on Digital Electronics, as part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree that we are delivering there for the first time this year.

Presenting at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival7th June 2013
It was a great pleasure to have been invited to speak at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival 2013. I took part in a panel session exploring the background and future possibilities of Energy Harvesting with Dr Paul Mitcheson and heart surgeon Sukumaran Nair. In the presentation to a sold-out crowd of 100 members of the general public, I gave an overview of the motivation for energy harvesting, and spoke about some of our recent EPSRC funded research in the area. It was a very enjoyable experien... [more]
