Dr Purav Shah joined Middlesex University in 2010. He is a Senior Lecturer in the Design Engineering and Mathematics Department within the Faculty of Science and Technology. 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.
