"BSc (Durham) PhD (Leicester) CEng FIET MURSI FHEA I am now working part time (1 day per week) fully engaged on a NERC funded research project."


"An underlying theme of my research projects is the development of a better understanding of the effects of the atmospheric (principally the ionospheric) environment on the propagation characteristics of radio waves and the development of techniques to account for these effects in radio system operation development and planning. All of my projects are experimentally based and involve the development deployment and operation of equipment at a number of sites away from Leicester for example over-sea paths in the Channel Islands in support of UHF studies and long distance paths (often in the Arctic) in support of investigations within the HF band. More information on my research can be found on my ORCID Profile: "
