Dr James Brown is a senior researcher in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University, currently employed on the EU FP7 RELYonIT project. Since completing his undergraduate degree at Lancaster he has worked on a number of research projects, including the industrially funded IPV6 Testbed, EPSRC funded NEMO project, EU FP7 GINSENG project and now the EU FP7 RELYonIT project. He was awarded his PhD in 2011 on advanced systems support for sensor networks; work that involved developing a novel multi-processor hardware platform. This work led to his current research interest in wireless networking and hardware architectures for embedded devices.

Research overview

My research aim is to tackle the issues limiting the adoption of wireless embedded systems. I focus on prototyping and practical experimentation, examining software communication methods to develop systems that support applications with extreme requirements and the resiliency for operation in real-world environments.
