Alex Weddell was awarded his MEng degree by the University of Southampton in 2005 and studied for his PhD (awarded in 2010), entitled 'A Comprehensive Scheme for Reconfigurable Energy-Aware Wireless Sensor Nodes', at the same institution. He contributed to the Data Information Fusion Defence Technology Centre (DIF DTC) 'Adaptive Energy-Aware Sensor Networks' project and worked under the EPSRC platform grant 'New Directions for Intelligent Sensors'. He has experience with a range of energy harvesting devices and has developed a platform which supports a mix of energy sources to power an energy-aware wireless sensor node. He worked on the 'Next Generation Energy-Harvesting Electronics: Holistic Approach' project, looking at energy device modelling and system-level design approaches. He was appointed as a lecturer in February 2013.
