    Profile

    I am a scientist and engineer with an established career in ionospheric radio propagation research.  I have degrees in Physics and Astronautics & Space Engineering and a PhD in the ionospheric impacts on HF radio direction finding at auroral and polar latitudes.  My Master’s thesis was on the impact of lightning-induced electron precipitation on the phase and amplitude of VLF transmissions due to transient modifications of the Earth-ionosphere waveguide.  For 14 years at QinetiQ, I provided research and advice for the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) and ESA on the effects of the ionosphere on radio systems including HF and UHF radars, space-based radar, UHF satcoms, HF/MF digital broadcasting, VLF communications, and GPS and Galileo navigation systems.

    From 2010-2013, at Sheffield University, I evaluated ionospheric impacts on the future ESA BIOMASS satellite mission – a polarimetric, interferometric synthetic aperture radar (SAR).  I provided the ionospheric simulation and correction software modules for the BIOMASS end-to-end radar simulator.  I also taught a 4th-year course on Signal Processing and ran Maths tutorials for students. In May 2013 I moved to Lancaster University to develop physics-based ionospheric models of HF absorption for aircraft communications.

    I have written ionospheric refraction, scattering and radiation source models and have processed and interpreted measurements from a variety of radio systems.  I have deployed ionosondes and experimental antenna arrays and managed several radio propagation field trials at QinetiQ.  I have project management training and experience and I’ve co-written several successful proposals for research funding.

    I am a scientist with an established reputation, regularly contributing to international conferences and workshops.  I publish and peer-reviews work in international journals and I have enjoyed successful collaborations with radio propagation scientists worldwide.
