Lectureship for ECS former student
Dr Geoff Merrett has been appointed to a Lectureship in ECS just four years after gaining a First Class degree in the School.
Geoff joined ECS in 2001, and took a BEng undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering. His third-year project persuaded him that he wanted to continue to do research - despite not having considered it before - and he became part of the Electronic Systems and Devices research group, undertaking a PhD on wireless sensor networks. He was appointed to a lectureship in the group from 1 December 2008, and successfully defended his PhD in the viva exam on 4 December.
Geoff is now keen to develop wireless sensors for healthcare and medical applications and is particularly interested in sensors which can be worn by users.
