Biography

Malcolm Woolfson graduated in 1978 with a B Sc in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Bristol. Between 1978 and 1981 he was a research student in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick, where he worked in the area of surface physics. He was awarded a Ph D in 1982. Between 1981 and 1983 he was employed as a research assistant in the Department of Physics at the University of Sheffield, where he carried out research into the dynamics of atoms in liquids. In 1983 he joined the Marconi Research Centre in Chelmsford, where he worked in the area of signal and data processing techniques for tracking radar. Since 1987 he has been a Lecturer in Signal Processing in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Nottingham. He has been involved in the application of a variety of signal and image processing techniques to various areas of engineering
