Projects per year
Sam works jointly between the High Performance Networking department and Engineering Mathematics, supervised by Prof. Eddie Wilson (Chair in Intelligent Transport Systems) and Prof. Dimitra Simeonidou (Head of HPN). This pioneering project is the first time the two departments have worked together.
Sam has many years of industry experience. He worked for four year at Transport for London in their Research and Development Department where he was part of the technical team upgrading the communications infrastructure for the traffic control system. Since then he has spent two years as a Systems Engineer designing and managing the installation of on shore renewable schemes.
Within academia Sam's research has focussed on the strategic development and deployment of technology interventions to better understand and manage the urban environment. Sam has deployed sophisticated technology based systems in a number of real world applications, creating a realtime Structural Health Monitoring dashboard for the Clifton Suspension Bridge, instrementing a fleet of electric bicycles to obtain detailed active mode mobility data, and the integration of edge compute into an Urban Traffic Control system to obtain finer grain information about vehicle movements. To achieve this Sam's research has developed technology integration and resilience understanding, but has also relied heavily on Soft Systems research to manage the interactions between the technology and the wider human context.
