||Peter Excell is Professor of Communications and Dean of Arts, Science and Technology at Glyndwr University, Wrexham, Wales (UK), which he joined in September 2007. He was previously Associate Dean for Research in the School of Informatics at the University of Bradford, where he had worked since 1971.
He obtained a BSc in Engineering Science from Reading University in 1970 and was awarded his PhD from Bradford University in 1980 for research in electromagnetic hazards.
His managerial brief at Glyndwr University has been to apply his broad experience to strengthen the academic culture of the teams under him. This has delivered many successes, including securing a relatively high score in the Research Assessment Exercise, achieving leading numbers of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with businesses, and building its international conference series on Internet Technologies and Applications (ITA11.org) to a high level of recognition.
His long-standing research interests have been in the applications and computation of high-frequency electromagnetic fields. These have led to numerous research grants, contracts and patents in the areas of antennas, electromagnetic hazards, electromagnetic compatibility and field computation.
His current research work includes applications of high-performance computing, studies of the effect of electromagnetic fields on biological cells, advanced antenna designs, and consideration of usage scenarios for future mobile communications devices.
He is a Fellow of the British Computer Society, of the Institution of Engineering & Technology and of the Higher Education Academy, a Chartered IT Professional and Chartered Engineer, a Senior Member of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers, an Associate Fellow of the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society, and a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society, and the Bioelectromagnetics Society.
