Prof. Alistair Duffy

Alistair Duffy has worked at De Montfort University in Leicester, United Kingdom, since 1994; prior to this he read for degrees at University College Cardiff, the University of Wales, and the University of Nottingham, and also worked in industry. He currently leads two research groups: the Centre for Electronic and Communications Engineering and the Advanced Manufacturing Processes and Mechatronics Centre. He has served two terms as a director-at-large of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society, and he is currently the chair of the EMC Society’s Standards Development and Education Committee (SDECom).  Alistair’s research work has contributed to IEEE 1597.1™, IEEE Standard for Validation of Computational Electromagnetics, Computer Modeling and Simulations.

About the School of Engineering and Sustainable Development at De Montfort University

The School of Engineering and Sustainable Development is one of three schools in the faculty of Technology; the other two are the School of Computer Science and Informatics, and the Leicester Media School. As well as a strong general engineering focus, the School of Engineering and Sustainable Development also has a research focus on sustainability, with a broad spectrum of related research, including energy economics. The undergraduate curriculum of the school is mechanical engineering, mechatronics, electronic engineering, and physics. The electronic engineering, mechatronics, and physics students share a number of courses, one of which is the course on electromagnetics.
