Research Fellow wanted in Networked Embedded Systems8th May 2017
I am recruiting for a Research Fellow for a multidisciplinary project researching wearable, self-powered, embedded sensing systems that are wirelessly networked with smart city infrastructure. This particular post is related to the project's Circuits and Algorithms theme, which is concerned with novel circuits, algorithms and protocols to enable the efficient integration of energy harvesting sources into low-power networked sensing systems. The successful applicants will research, develop and evaluate algorithms, circuits and techniques to enable efficient, self-powered, embedded networked sensing systems.

Applicants should be good communicators able to collaborate with others, take a methodological approach to their work, and be hard-working and reliable. Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience relating to one or more of the following areas: networking protocols for embedded systems; software development for embedded microcontrollers; low-power and energy harvesting embedded systems. They are also expected to have experience of the practical validation of their research, ideally using commercial microcontroller platforms.
The nature of the funding source means that the successful candidate is expected to only be employed on this particular project for a maximum period of one year, ideally moving onto other suitable projects within the research team after this. You will also be supported in contributing to research proposals in areas related to this project. The project also has a 'flexible innovation fund' which provides funding that research fellows involved with the project can apply for to fund short research projects. These projects can perform feasibility studies to support proposals or publications.

Best Paper Award at IJCAI 201315th July 2013
Our paper titled "A hidden Markov model-based acoustic cicada detector for crowdsourced smartphone biodiversity monitoring" received the award for Outstanding Student Paper at the International Joint Conference for Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), 2013. The conference was held in Beijing, China, and the paper was presented by Davide Zilli.Abstract: Automated acoustic recognition of species aims to provide a cost-effective method for biodiversity monitoring. This is particularly appealing for det... [more]
I Cross the 50-Publications Mark!8th May 2013
The number of papers I have published has now crossed the '50' mark!My first paper was published in 2004, as a result of my undergraduate dissertation project, supervised by Prof. Bashir Al-Hashimi. Since then, my publications have continued, and escalated in recent years - largely thanks to the excellent team of researchers that I have working on projects with me.Next stop: 100!
