Karl Woodbridge is Professor of Electronic Engineering in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London. He joined UCL in 1990 following 11 years working for Philips Electronics as a research scientist and project manager in the semiconductor materials and devices area.

Current RF research activities at UCL include multi-static and netted radar systems, sea clutter, target tracking and classification and land and air based passive sensing. Other research interests include epitaxial growth and characterisation of quantum nanostructures. His research activities have been carried out in investigator and technical consultancy roles for a wide range of customers in the civil, security and defence sectors including research councils, industrial companies and government agencies. He has published or presented over 200 journal and conference papers in the above areas.

He has served on many national and international conference and seminar committees and has collaborated extensively with industrial and academic partners in Europe, the USA, Africa and Australia. He is a Fellow of the IET, a Fellow of the UK Institute of Physics, a Senior Member of the IEEE and was Chairman of the IET Radar, Sonar and Navigation Technical and Professional Network from 2010 – 2014. He is a visiting Professor in the Radar and Remote Sensing Group at the University of Cape Town and is the Director of the UCL JDI Centre for Security Technology.

Research areas of interest include:

  • Low cost digital radar development
  • Netted and narrowband radar systems
  • Doppler target classification
  • Passive detection and tracking using wireless networks
  • Molecular Beam Epitaxy of III-V quantum devices and nanostructures

The above activities have been carried out in research investigator and technical consultancy roles for a range of customers in the civil and defence areas and have generated in excess of 150 conference and journal publications.

Research in the group has been supported by a number of organizations and companies including BAe, EPSRC, MoD, NATS, Ofcom, Thales, QinetiQ and Selex
