Professor Ian Robertson
Head of the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Programme Manager for the Mechatronics and Robotics degree programmes. He holds the University of Leeds Centenary Chair in Microwave and Millimetre-Wave Circuits. He has published over 400 papers in the area of microwave engineering and was elected Fellow of the IEEE in 2012 in recognition of his contributions to MMIC design and millimetre-wave system-in-package technology. These technologies have now become a core part of the wireless communications revolution and he is now applying “system-in-a-package” techniques to the design of miniature robots – particularly in the area of high frequency communications and sensing for applications such as exploration robotics and industrial sensing.
