Last updated September 2010

High School Education

I was born on May 4th, in Brisbane, Australia. I quickly got better and moved to Sydney. I attended both preparatory school and high school at The Scots College and matriculated in 1973 with the Higher School Certificate (the Australian university entrance qualification administered by the Board of Studies in my home state) with a major in chemistry.

While still at high school I obtained an amateur radio operator's certificate of proficiency and became a "ham" with call sign VK2YBN. By the time I finished high school I had built a tube-based oscilloscope, hi-fi equipment, and numerous other electronic projects. At high school I was an Air Force cadet for 3 years. I earned places at both the 15th International Summer Science School (now the Professor Harry Messel International Science School), held at the School of Physics at the University of Sydney in 1972, and the Australian National University Mathematics Summer School, held in the national capital at the School of Mathematical Sciences (now the Mathematical Sciences Institute), in 1973.

Undergraduate Education

I enrolled at The University of Sydney (the premier "ivy league" university in Australia). I initially studied psychology and physics, and graduated in 1977 with a BSc. I subsequently saw the light and continued with Electrical Engineering, graduating in 1979 with an honours degree, majoring in electronics and communications. My undergraduate honours thesis was on Antenna Design for VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) equipment with attention to imperfect and discontinuous ground plane.

While an undergraduate, I was involved in the Tolkein Society, and I attended Wesley College in 1977 and 1978. I played Gandalf in the 1977 Tolkein society production in the Great Hall of the University.

Journalism

In 1978 I worked briefly for Ron Aitchison at Macquarie University doing electronic design work. I subsequently took a job writing for Electronics Today International. This magazine was set up by Modern Magazines in Sydney in 1971. It expanded to have English, German and, by 1977, Canadian versions, although the English ETI is the only one that survives to 2004; the original ETI, along with the long-running Electronics Australia, are subsumed into Silicon Chip. I designed about 40 electronic projects for ETI, starting with a simple battery monitor, my first-published circuit design, and one that resulted when I won a staff competition to see who could design the required circuit with the fewest parts.

Graduate Work with the Air Navigation Group

In 1980 I started working for the Air Navigation Group (a research lab at Sydney University funded by the Department of Transport's equivalent of the USA's Federal Aviation Authority), and enrolled in a Master's degree. I finished in 1984, and graduated in 1985 with a Master of Engineering Science degree. My thesis was on Microwave Transient Digitisation, and involved both a wide study of possible technologies, and a modification of a Tektronix 7912AD for operation to 2GHz to allow signal capture from L-band radar without downconversion.

During my time with the ANG, I worked on ILS and VOR systems, and on scale modelling of antenna sites, including a 20x model of Hong Kong harbour in which 5GHz navigation systems were modelled at 100GHz. I obtained an Electrical Contractor's Licence, now administered by the business licencing department of the NSW Office of Fair Trading.

Employment: Sydney University

In 1984 I worked as a Senior Tutor, then lecturer, at Sydney University, in the Department of Electrical Engineering, now The Department of Electrical and Information Engineering. This employment became part-time in 1986, during which I was a director of Brereton-Samuel Research, an electronics company based in Sydney.

In 1987, I accepted a Senior Lectureship and assumed the position of the manager of the Sydney Microwave Design Resource Center. I was the developer of the Electronics and Communications laboratory syllabus and experiments for third and fourth year students; I was on the Salary Market Loading administration and assessment committee; I developed the High Frequency Engineering course for postgraduate and industrial attendees. I taught Electronics and Microwave Engineering, and I wrote the textbook for the final-year Electronics course. I introduced Peer Assessment programs to Electrical Engineering, and I was involved with the National Engineering Summer School program in association with the University of New South Wales and The University of Technology, Sydney. I developed and used video instruction modules with the (then) University Television Service. I developed, organised and presented Continuing Education courses, such as Traffic Radar for the Legal Profession and High Frequency Engineering, in conjunction with the Continuing Electrical Engineering Education and Training unit within that department. I supervised students. I initiated the projects for documenting and controlling course syllabi to ensure consistency and continuity. I was responsible for the original introduction and organisation of CAD facilities in departmental undergraduate teaching courses. I was on the committee overseeing the introduction of the Graduate Program in Audio in the School of Architecture, Design, and Planning, and I subsequently taught in that program.

During my time on the academic staff I had a number of visiting appointments, consultancies and awards. Major examples are listed below; I also designed FET and vacuum tube audio power amplifiers, designed video signal processing and distribution circuits, designed and programmed a pulsed-I/V semiconductor parameter analyzer, designed high linearity MESFET circuitry, designed a total difference-frequency distortion meter, and designed a MOSFET-based electric vehicle propulsion system for the vehicle that won the 1982 Australian Electric Vehicle Association race.

Ultrasound Front-end Design

I was responsible for the design of the prototype analog front end for ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound instruments in the 1-15MHz range for Ausonics, a company in the Nucleus Group of medical engineering companies. This work produced state-of-the-art receiver circuits and technology. Ausonics manufactured medical ultrasound equipment from 1975 to the early 1990s.

British Telecom Fellowship

In the Summer of 1993 I received a fellowship to work at British Telecom Laboratories in Martlesham Heath (now renamed BT Exact in Adastral Park) in East Anglia, UK. I worked in the section responsible for III-V semiconductor fabrication, modelling and circuit design, working on HFETs.

Teaching Prize

In 1994 I received the Electrical Engineering Foundation teaching prize.

Legal Consultant, Microwaves and Radar

I worked as an expert witness in numerous cases involving both traffic and navigation radar matters in NSW and interstate courts.

Honorary Associate, Macquarie University

My work has given rise to a strong collaboration between Macquarie and Sydney Universities, and the establishment of a collaborative research faciliy. This was recognised by the senate of Macquarie University in my appointment as an Honorary Associate of that institution.

Visiting Lecturer, University of Western Sydney

During a sabbatical leave I undertook duties at the University of Western Sydney, in the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Visiting Researcher, University College, London

In 1995, I worked with Professor David Haigh and Dr Danny Webster in the Department of Electrical Engineering in University College. I worked on techniques for the design of MMICs with emphasis on linearity.

Committee Member, Australian Standards Authority

In 1996 I was appointed to various committees set up by the Australian Standards Authority.

Engineers's Australia Prize for Best Book Review, 1995.

PhD

In 1992 I began collaborative work with David Skellern and later Anthony Parker at Macquarie University. Dr Parker and I set up CNERF. In 1997 I was awarded the degree of PhD with a thesis entitled "Mildly Distorting Electronic Systems: Measurement, Design and Simulation". Work completed as part of that project was exhibited on the Hewlett-Packard stand at the trade display of the annual IEEE Microwave Symposium in 1996.

Employment: RF Technology

From 1997 to 1998 I was the Chief Engineer at RF Technology in Sydney. I was responsible for design and continual improvement of a range of PMR base station equipment from 70 to 950 MHz. Responsibilities included design and software maintenance of the MRP system, testing for type approval, design of circuits, PCBs and assembly hardware, and the hiring and supervision of technical and engineering staff.

Employment: Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies

From 1998 to 2006 I ran the Advanced Measurements Laboratory in the Characterization, Tools and Modeling (CHARM) group for Hewlett-Packard (subsequently Agilent Technologies) in the Mircowave Technology Center, in Santa Rosa, California. I was responsible for conception, system design and implementation of measurement systems from dc to 120GHz. I developed leading-edge measurement capabilities including high-power pulsed I/V and pulsed S-parameter device characterization systems, time-domain test systems for logic and 40GB/s components, power amplifier test systems to 75GHz, wide-dynamic-range distortion measurement systems, and large-signal network and signal analyzers. I was responsible for characterization and modeling of a variety of semiconductor devices including GaAs/InGaAs HBTs, InP HBTs, and GaN FETs. I was the system architect and integration engineer responsible for the new IC to be used in the next generation line of thermocouple power sensors from RF to millimetre wave. I was the champion and chief designer of a new line of phase reference impulse generators and the Phaser/Quattro Nonlinear Vector Network Analyzer that is supported using them. I disclosed numerous patents in the course of my work at Agilent, and I am sole attributee on a number of these. Several defend current or upcoming products. I worked in collaboration with Macquarie University. I was on the National Academies' Review Panel responsible for reviewing the activities of the EEL division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and I have positive relationships with several of the researchers at the NIST Colorado site.

Employment: The University of Waikato

Since July 2006 I have been the Foundation Professor of Electronic Engineering at The University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. I was hired for this position on the basis of my proven research record, my creative original ideas and achievements, my ability to present, and the knowledge that I can work with a large range of people and help them achieve excellence in research and teaching. As of 2009, I teach Electronics, Integrated Circuits and Mechatronics courses, and I supervise 8 research students.

I am an Adjunct Professor at Macquarie University, Sydney. I am a regular reviewer for the European Microwave Conference, the IEEE International Microwave Symposium, and the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. I have research collaborations with Agilent Technologies in California, Agilent Technologies in Penang, Malaysia, the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, Gallagher International and Novel Electronics in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Personal Details

I hold an Australian passport as well as an EU (UK) passport. I held a Green Card, and was a permanent resident of California, USA from 1998 to 2006. I have a house, a wife and children... the whole catastrophe, as Zorba described it. I enjoy music, film, writing, strategy games, gardening, cooking and photography.

I am fluent in English, C, LaTeX and HTML, and I have a working knowledge of French, Postscript, Unix, and OSX, for which I have great respect. I maintain the family website and have done so since I started writing it in 1998.

I know more about house renovation and mechanical repairs than is desirable, having rebuilt at least one whole car and a straight-six engine, renovated an apartment in Sydney, a house in California, and now a Farmhouse in New Zealand. I may well be the world's foremost authority on the design of model train controllers, having been building them for more than 30 years.
