Dr Glenford Mapp received his BSc (First Class Honours) from the University of the West Indies in 1982, an MEng (Distinction in Thesis) from Carleton University in Ottawa in 1985 and a PhD from the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge in 1992. He then worked for AT&T Cambridge Laboratories for ten years before joining Middlesex University as a Principal Lecturer.
Glenford is currently an Associate Professor. His primary expertise is in the development of new technologies for mobile, distributed and vehicular systems. Glenford did research on Y-Comm, an architecture for future mobile communications systems. He now leads research into Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and has been involved in the design and deployment of VANET (G5) Testbeds. See: www.vanet.mdx.ac.uk.
In February 2018, Glenford was chosen by Amity University in Noida, India to receive the Amity University Distinguished Researcher Award in the field of Networking for his significant contributions to heterogeneous networking. The award was presented at the IEEE Sponsored 9th International Conference on Cloud Computing, Data Science & Engineering; Confluence-2019 on January 10th-11th 2019 at Amity University Campus, Sector 125, Noida, India.
Professor Alexey Vinel from Halmstad University in Sweden, a pioneer in vehicular networking, and I have been asked to be Guest Editors of a Special Issue of the MDPI Future Internet journal on Advances in Vehicular Communications, Networking and Systems.
If you have research that you think can be published in this Special Issue, then please get in touch. The deadline for manuscript submissions is 20 July 2021.
Glenford has also been looking at Queueing Theory to understand pandemics such as COVID-19. Please see the work at Modelling Pandemics such as COVID-19 Using Queueing Theory: Accessed from:
This work has not been peer-reviewed but your feedback would be really appreciated.
Enjoying my Chess
Glenford is also a keen chess player. Find his Immortal Game online
In addition to this, in order to do something interesting and challenging to keep his mind active and engaged in the current COVID-19 pandemic, Glenford is experimenting with a new type of chess game which we are currently calling Black Chess, see: Rules-of-Black-Chess
Do have a play and give him some feedback!!
Dr. Mapp also has over 130 papers in refereed journals and conferences. A full list of his publications can be found at:
