Steve Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Electronics and Telecommunications in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering and Informatics. He was Head of Electrical Engineering 2013-5 and Director of Studies 2010-3. Currently co-supervising 8 PhD students, his research interests include radio propagation, multiple-antenna technologies and signal processing for communications systems. He has published 1 patent and around 100 journal and conference papers, with 12 journal papers appearing between 2013-5. He recently completed two KTP projects graded outstanding, with local company, Seven Technologies Group, to develop a new generation of accurate and reliable radio tracking systems and with Pace plc., to develop advanced antenna arrays for their home entertainment systems. Since joining the University in 1987, he has worked on a wide variety of research projects in the area of mobile radio propagation (notably Mobile VCE and TEAMS) and satellite slant-path propagation (e.g. 10 GHz bistatic-scatter, 11/14 GHz scintillation with INTELSAT-V and ice depolarization with Olympus). He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation 2004-8.
