Papers Taught

Research Supervised

I supervise research students working on fractional-derivative equivalent-circuit modelling especially of rechargeable batteries; vector correction of acoustic measurements; RF & microwave circuits & systems; threshold concepts; and impedance measurement of wet systems including batteries and electrodes.

HDR students supervised: Peter Blockley, Toby Balsom, Mark Jones, Cameron Kelly, Kyle Pennington, Steven McCabe, Gaojie Chen, Mark Benseman, Jonathan McMullan, Sam Parkinson, Russel Mohamed, Dan Ho, Rahat Hasan, Benson Chang, Viking Zhou, Marcus Macdonell, Hedayati Mohamed, Amir Mukhtar, Iris Xiao, Dirk Hartung, Stefan Gygax, Carl Lickfold, Hiroshi Mohri, Daniel Dredge, Sinduja Seshadri, Sina Enteshari, Jianbang Liu, Chris Dunn, Vance Farrow, Gordan Wildschut, Keshav Basnet, & Eden Poihipi.

Research Interests

Electronic circuits; biomedical systems; RF & microwave; rechargeable batteries; instrumentation & measurement; engineering education; threshold concepts; audio and acoustics; linearity and distortion.

I am an EE; my work focusses on characterisation, measurement, modelling and simulation, microhertz to gigahertz. Recent work has strong electrochemical and biomedical context revolving around modelling rechargeable batteries and electrodes for human implantation. I have built phase standards, made implant leads safe in MRI scanners, and developed rechargeable battery equivalent circuit models with constant-phase elements instead of voltage sources. I also carry out research in acoustic measurement, circuits, embedded microcontrollers, and engineering education especially in the context of threshold concepts.
