George Smart
PhD Student
George Smart joined the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at University College London in September 2007 when he started his undergraduate masters degree. Upon completion of his degree, he stayed with the department, joining the Communications and Information Systems group (CISG), where he is currently working towards a PhD on energy-aware MAC protocols for wireless sensor networks under the supervision of Dr Yiannis Andreopoulos. His research interests go beyond wireless sensor networks to span various areas, including embedded systems software and firmware, digital signal processing and hardware design.
George currently works in the field of cooperative communication systems for wireless sensor networks. Specifically, MAC-layers for self forming and organising sensor networks, as well as energy aware and energy neutral protocols for the Internet of Things.

As well as MAC protocols, George has also experimented with energy harvesting testbeds.
Aside from my Ph.D, I am interested in Radio. I am a fully licenced radio amateur (M1GEO) and Linux fan. I like to write firmware for embedded devices (which fits nicely with my Ph.D). I maintain my own webserver which hosts my personal website amongst other things.
