Adaptive Communications Networks Research Group

Organization profile

Organisation profile

This research group focuses on a range of networking architectures from mobile systems to ad-hoc sensor networks. Techniques involve the design of advanced digital systems for application-specific embedded systems and advanced algorithms for improving network efficiency. The Group uses state-of-the-art dynamic field programmable gate array hardware to examine physical implementations of these principles.

Research Studentships

The group has access to EPSRC funded studentships. We are particularly interested in candidates interested in ad-hoc networking and mobile systems. Full funding is available to EU citizens, non-EU citizens may apply but they must provide full funding for fees and maintenance. Formal applications should be submitted to the research office of the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
