Personal profile

Interests

Dr. Gareth Conway (PI) is a Lecturer in the Centre of Wireless Innovation at the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) since 2013. Following his PhD, QUB in 2005-2008, he held the following roles: Wireless Fibre Technologies, Scotland, 2008-2011 as a Research & Development Engineer (with UK Secret Security clearance) and as a Research Fellow at QUB 2011-13. Gareth is actively immersed in antennas and propagation for wireless body-centric networks. His research interests encompass antennas, human tissue materials, printable microwave advanced surfaces and materials, wireless medical sensors, wave propagation and computational electromagnetism for wearable communications. He has authored over 40 conference and journal papers and has five antenna related patents. His work has involved strong collaboration with industrial partners to optimise the performance of wearable systems. He also has experience managing ‘knowledge transfer’ between the commercial and academic sectors. He was Principal investigator on EPSRC grant EP/P000983/1 and successfully completed a fully funded commercial research project ‘wearable antennas for medical device monitors’ as PI. For work on the commercial project he was awarded the QUB Vice Chancellor’s Early Career Researcher Impact Prize 2014. In March 2017, Dr. Conway organised and chaired the first ‘All-Ireland Workshop on Wearable and Implantable Antennas & Propagation’ sponsored by the IEEE.

Research interests include:

Wearable antenna design

EM wave propagation analysis

Experimental measurements for wearable communications

Human tissue phantoms and test-beds 

Wireless medical sensors

He is an active IEEE member and reviewer of the Antennas and Propagation Society; Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
