Dr Michael Elsdon

Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

What area does your research focus on?

My research is focused on wireless communications, high-frequency antenna design, microwave imaging and sensing. I have worked on the design and implementation of a microwave imaging tool for early-stage breast cancer detection. I am currently involved in the use of wearable electronics for sensing applications.  

What are the other key aspects of your role?

I am the program leader for the undergraduate electrical degree and also a module tutor for a number of modules on this program. I am also a staff mentor for colleagues within the Department of Maths, Physics and Electrical Engineering. 

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. I have a keen interest in sport, particularly football and golf. I also like to keep myself fit by attending regular exercises. 

What do you think you could particularly offer mentoring support with?
  • Developing your research profile, thinking about the real-world applications of research and how it can benefit society. 
  • Helping to negotiate the peaks and troughs of research and providing support to develop your confidence as a researcher.
