Dr Glenford Mapp received his BSc (First Class Honours) from the University of the West Indies in 1982, a 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 does research on Y-Comm, an architecture for future mobile communications systems. He also 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.
