Julian Gardner joined the School in 1987. His research interests are microsensors, microsystems technology, electronic noses, intelligent sensors and multivariate data processing methods.  He has previously spent 5 years in industry working first at AEA Technology Ltd and later at Molins Advanced Technology Unit on instrumentation.  At Molins he developed a novel opto-electronic sensor that has been packaged in the UK and US for implementation on high speed packaging machinery. In 1989 he received the Esso Centenary Education Award sponsored by the Royal Society and Fellowship of Engineering to pursue his research interests. He has published over 400 technical papers and is an author of 8 books. He was an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship in Germany in 1994. In addition to being professor of electronic engineering, he is Head of the Sensors Research Laboratory and is Director of the Centre for Cognitive & Neural Systems at Warwick. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2006 and won the IET JJ Thompson Medal for Achievements in Electronics in 2007.
