Dr Sian Armstrong
PhD, MEng, MIET
Lecturer - Teaching and Research
Since joining Cardiff School of Engineering, Siân has supervised a Teaching Company Scheme associate, and provided consultancy to local companies requiring expertise in embedded design and Bluetooth connectivity. She was appointed a lecturer in October 2003, and teaches in the fields of Digital Design, Data Acquisition, Micro-processing, Communication Systems and Medical Electronics. She undertook and was awarded her PhD as a staff candidate.
In addition to her teaching duties and research interests, Siân is ERASMUS co-ordinator for the School of Engineering, MSc Admissions Tutor (Wireless and Microwave Communication Engineering), and a member of the Learning and Teaching Committee.
Dr Siân Armstrong studied for an MEng at The University of Southampton, the final year of which was spent studying at ESIEE (École Supérieure d`Ingénieurs en Électronique et Électrotechnique) in Paris, France. She graduated in 1996 with a Master of Electronic Engineering with European Studies.
Following her graduation, Siân accepted a graduate engineer post at Roke Manor Research (a contract R&D business, then part of the Siemens Group) by whom she was sponsored throughout her undergraduate studies. She worked in the Broadcast Technology skill group on projects such as Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB), Software Adaptive Radio and Dual mode, dual-band mobile telephones. During this time, she was named as joint-inventor on two Software Radio related patents (Adaptive Terminal Architecture, and A tunable two-path interference notch filter using a programmable delay).
In July 2000, Siân joined Cardiff University, School of Engineering to run an European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project -The Centre for High Frequency Engineering - to provide High Frequency design and characterisation expertise for small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Industrial South Wales.
Her research interests have included Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) and Magnetic Inductance tomography (MIT) - techniques for non-invasive, low-cost imaging for Medical Diagnosis. Her current research interests are in the fields of Wireless Body Sensor Networks (BSN), Embedded Systems and Pervasive Health Monitoring.
