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.
