John E. Mitchell is Professor of Communications Systems Engineering in the UCL Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Vice-Dean Education in the UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences. He received the B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from UCL (University College London), UK in 1996 and 2000, respectively and an MA in Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education from the UCL institute of Education in 2016. In 1999 he became a research fellow in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL, becoming a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Telecommunications in September 2000 and 2006 respectively. In 2015 he was promoted to the Chair of Communications Systems Engineering. His research is focused on optical and wireless access systems, considering optical fibre access, millimeter-wave radio access, as well as systems that combine these two areas, specifically to support mobile front/back haul systems. This work has been funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) , the European Union (FP7, Marie-Curie), the UK Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and industry (including BT and SELEX ES).

He has recently returned from secondment to the UCL Engineering Sciences Faculty office, where he led the introduction of the Integrated Engineering Programme a cross department revision of Engineering Education. In 2009, he was awarded the UCL Provost's award for teaching and has published on curriculum development with engineering education. Professor Mitchell is a Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Member of the Board of Directors of the European Society for Engineering Education and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Research areas of interest include:

  • Radio-over-fibre systems for future mobile communications systems, fixed wireless access network platforms and optical beamforming networks.
  • Noise and interference effects in high capacity WDM optical networks.
  • Novel modulation schemes for fixed radio access.
  • Access network technologies and IP-voice convergence.
