A. Armitage received his PhD in Physics from Warwick University. He is a Senior Lecturer and Subject Group leader in the area of Computer Systems and Networks. He is also the Research Degree Coordinator for the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Creative Industries. His research is mostly in the area of Sensor Systems, particularly using infrared for applications such as pedestrian tracking and gesture recognition. He has been holder of a number of external grants, most recently for the use of pyroelectric sensors for energy saving in the home and in the miniaturisation of pyroelectric sensors for security applications. He has published nearly 50 papers and acts as a referee for journals such as Sensors and Microprocessors & Microsystems. He is a chartered engineer, a chartered physicist and a chartered measurement and control technologist and a member of the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Measurement & Control.
