Chris is a Part Time PhD research student sponsored by Marshall ADG. He is researching how structures affect the performance of antennas and how those effects can be used to increase performance, especially large vehicles such as aircraft.

Chris is currently working for Marshall ADG responsible for the systems design and integration of avionics systems within aircraft.

Research Title: Efficient methods for determining installed performance of antennas on large vehicles

Chris started his working career as a avionics technician, before returning to education full time to study Electronic and Electrical Engineering at university, graduating from Brunel University in 2004.  He then went on to work for Marshall Aerospace as an avionics systems integration engineer in which he developed a strategy for EMI/EMC technical procedures design and test, antenna pattern measurements.  At this time Chris studied part time for an MSc in Electronics EMC and RF communications at the University of York, graduating in 2008.

Chris is a Chartered Engineer and has worked on a number of projects involving antenna measurement, design for electromagnetic compatibility and performing electromagnetic measurement.  He is currently involved into the integrating of avionics and communication systems on large aircraft as well as carrying out his PhD research.
