Fellowship for Professor Ian Hunter
Ian Hunter, Professor of Microwave Signal Processing in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, has been made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineers.
Professor Hunter was appointed to his current chair in 2012. His long-standing area of research is into the theory and design of microwave filters where work he has done in industry and in academia on both sides of the Atlantic is seen as significant. His book, The Theory and Design of Microwave Filters, is seen as the standard reference work on the subject.
His work has led to new classes of filters for mobile and satellite communications and radar systems. He was appointed to a Professorship at Leeds in 2003 and his recent appointment to the new Research Chair is linked to the establishment of the Centre of Microwave Signal Processing at Leeds. The objective of the Centre is to develop innovations in radio frequency technology to meet the voracious demands on bandwidth from future mobile communication systems.Posted in: University news
