Lead formulation of research proposals (tendered) for 3-year projects funded by National Measurement Office (see 1.1.3). Scout, short-list & interview candidates for new staff. Coach junior scientists to RF/microwave measurements. Oversee project-related procurement. Report team's progress to Head of Division (monthly). Organise and conduct weekly progress meetings with research group. Develop internal and external collaborations. Attract and mentor overseas PG research students with specific skills. Actively engage in research work in area of personal expertise. Write & edit papers for publication. Present Annual Reports to Working Party of National Measurement Office. Lead and contribute to 3rd-party projects with industrial involvement and/or funding (see 3.2).

Areas of R&D activity:

Wireless communications: multi-user communication systems (MIMO) in hgh-mobility complex multi-scattering environments; systematic experimental investigation of signal distortion, EM interference and bit-error rate in state-of-the-art protocols (W-CDMA, OFDM, Bluetooth, ZigBee) for indoor or outdoor propagation, diffraction and scattering, performance of in resonant environments. Study of EM interference and bit-error rate in ZigBee-based wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Statistical characterisation of indoor wave propagation, scattering and diffraction.
Metamaterials: active metamaterials based on negative impedances. Fano resonances in planar multi-split ring microresonators. Simulation of 2-D and 2.5-D frequency-selective surfaces with complex-shaped unit cells.
Random 3-D electromagnetic fields and coherence: field distributions and spatial correlation in nanometric and mesoscopic systems, nonstationarity and analyticity of 3D random EM fields.
Standardization and international collaborations: International standards development: Convenor of Joint Task Force CISPR/A-SC77B of IEC on reverberation chambers (IEC 61000-4-21.Ed.2) and Member of Joint Task Force CISPR/A-TC77 of IEC on measurement uncertainty (IEC 61000-1-6). Development of New Work Proposals, coordinating working group & brokering consensus approach, technical contribution (development of specialist Clauses). Local coordinator for COST 2100 collaboration on wireless communications. Member of Advisory Board for FP6 Network of Excellence “Metamorphose” on metamaterials; associated member of follow-up Virtual Institute. Convenor of IEC working group on electromagnetic reverberation chambers for EMC.
