Dr Andrew Kemp

The fields of Electronic Engineering and Computing are closely allied and I'm excited to be the programme manager for our Electronics and Computer Engineering course. This is an area where industry is screaming out for expertise and our graduates are ideally placed to meet this demand. Increasingly multidisciplinary expertise to bridge divides is essential in these fields and in all modern technical developments. This course really does provide students with a highly sort after set of skills.

My own research is focussed on Wireless networking, especially WSNs and IoT technology, including localization developments. I'm looking at application of this technology to improved energy efficiency, especially in buildings. Currently I am supervising four international PhD students in this area and three MSc project students. It's an exciting time seeing the application of communications and powerful processing to many new areas.

I have experience of a number of northern English Universities. I first graduated from York, I got my PhD in Hull and did some post-doc research in Bradford before coming to Leeds where I have been for nearly 20 years now. I also worked in industry for a number of years both in the UK and abroad.

It is my aim to ensure that our undergraduate students have the best study experience and we have a fantastic range of courses available which are taught by our world-class academics.
