I studied for my undergraduate degree at Wadham College, Oxford University and obtained an MEng in Engineering Science in 1998. From university I joined Roke Manor Research Ltd, a Siemens owned research company, where I work within the Array Technology skill group. In 2000 I joined the Communications & Signal Processing Research Group at Imperial College to work towards a PhD with the support of Roke Manor.
