Dr Mark Halton

Biography

I am currently a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Limerick (UL), Ireland. I received my Ph.D. and M.Eng. degrees from the University of Limerick, and my H.Dip. and BA, BAI degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. I joined the Circuits and Systems Research Centre (CSRC) in UL in 2001. Since this time, I have successfully secured six funded research projects as principal investigator (PI) and one as co-author.
