About This PhD Project

Project Description

The Department of Electronics at the University of York undertakes world-leading research in a number of areas of electronic and computer engineering. The most recent Research Excellence Framework results judged that 87% of our research was World Leading or Internationally Excellent.

In the Applied Electromagnetic laboratory of the Physical Layer research group we are working solving problems related to the prevention and control of electromagnetic interference. As we rely increasing on electronic systems, often with wireless communications (Wi-Fi, mobile phone, satcom etc.), radio navigation (GPS etc), it is important that the systems can function in the presence of radio frequency interference caused by natural (lightning) and man made (radio radar transmitters, and other equipment).

We are also working on a number of problems using electromagnetic waves for medical applications including diagnostic techniques, thawing of cryo-preserved samples, and the delivery of drugs to the specific sites in the body.

In this project you would develop computational electromagnetic techniques which can be applied to solving some or all of these problems.

Prospective students should have a strong background in mathematics and computing and electromagnetics .
