Dr Alistair Duffy is Reader in Electromagnetics. He received his BEng(Hons) and MEng degrees in 1988 and 1989 respectively from University College, Cardiff, University of Wales. He read for his PhD with professors Christopoulos and Benson at Nottingham University, graduating in 1993. He also holds an MBA from the Open University, UK, graduating in 2004. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, formerly the IEE) and a Senior Member of the IEEE.He is widely published, mostly on his research interests of validation of computational electromagnetics; physical layer components, particularly communications cabling, and electromagnetic compatibility testing. These are the three areas on which he lectured as an IEEE EMC Society Distinguished Lecturer for 2008 and 2009, having the privilege to talk to colleagues in Poland, Turkey, Croatia, Romania, Italy, Spain and, of course, the UK. He is currently a member of the IEEE EMC Society’s Respected Speakers Bureau. Alistair’s professional service has seen him contribute to many successful conferences through refereeing functions or organising committee responsibilities. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the International Wire and Cable Symposium, which attracts approximately 1000 delegates annually. Publication commitments also see him as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on EMC and as Editor-in-Chief of the Transactions of the IWCS, as well as Editor-in-Chief of the ACES Newsletter. Other professional activities include standards body work in the UK (British Standards Institute) and in the IEEE. He is also currently a Board member of the IEEE EMC Society.Alistair was Series Editor for a series of undergraduate textbooks published by Butterworth-Heinemann (now part of Elsevier).He has served in many committee roles in the IET (formally IEE) including Council, International Board and Chair of the Electromagnetics Professional Network.He is Course Leader for MSc Electronic Engineering and lectures on electronics and communication subjects, particularly electromagnetics and EMC.
