Please Note: There are NO opportunities for internships as such schemes do not fit at all well with our academic year as they fall right in the middle of examinations and marking. Also, there is no funding for such a placement here.
MARK LEESON'S RESEARCH
For the Mathematicians out there:
Erdös Number = 6 (Mark S Leeson -> Ioan Grosu -> E. Atlee Jackson -> Alfred W. Hübler -> Michael Baym -> Douglas B. West -> Paul Erdős)
Less formal route = 4 (Mark S Leeson -> Sadie Creese -> A. W. Roscoe -> Mary Ellen Rudin -> P. Erdös)
Mark is a member of the Connected Systems Research Group.
His current major research interests are:
Optical Wireless, Optical Networks, Coding Schemes, Modulation Formats, Emergent Behaviour, Applications of Machine Learning.
An exciting EPSRC project (EP/F033591/1 Network Coding via Evolutionary AlgorithmsLink opens in a new window) produced some interesting and significant results [Hu et al., Computers and Operations Research, 39(5), 952-963, 2012].
The EU Outgoing International Fellowship Project (PIOF-GA-2011299725), Integrated Risk Governance via Spatial Complexity Inspired Models and Algorithms (IRGSCIMA)Link opens in a new window (Engineering web pageLink opens in a new window) supported Dr Xiaobing Hu working with the State Key Laboratory of Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology at Beijing Normal UniversityLink opens in a new window.
