Lecturer in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester
I am a lecturer in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester. I teach students how to design and program embedded computing systems, like the Raspberry Pi, to solve everyday engineering challenges. I work with industry on the design of wireless communication and sensing systems, and I have recently joined a Faculty team to help design the new Engineering campus at Manchester.
My Typical Day: Teaching students how to solve real-world problems with embedded computing systems, working with industry to design wireless communication systems, and helping with the design of Manchester’s new engineering campus.
