Purav Shah is a Senior Lecturer in the Design Engineering and Mathematics Department at Middlesex University London. Prior to that, he was an Associate Research Fellow at the University of Exeter on EU-FP6 PROTEM project on scanning probe-based memories from 2008 to 2010. His work included read channel design; noise modelling and signal processing for probe storage.
He received his PhD in Communication and Electronics Engineering from University of Plymouth, UK, in 2008. He is also a UK HEA Fellow.
He did his MSc in Personal and Mobile Radio Communications from Lancaster University, UK, in 2003 and his BEng degree in Electronics Engineering from Sardar Patel University, Gujarat, India, in 2002.
CCE1020 - Fundamentals of STEM (Year 1) Common module for all BEng programmes
Research Outputs & Interests
His research interests broadly are in the field of performance evaluation of wireless sensor networks (protocols, routing, and energy efficiency), Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M solutions, system modelling of heterogeneous wireless networks, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Big Data Analysis of network traffic.
