Speaker Biography (Paul D Mitcheson)

Paul D. Mitcheson received the MEng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2001 and the PhD degree in 2005 both from Imperial College London. He is currently a Lecturer at Imperial in the Control and Power Research Group in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department and his main research interest in micro-power generators and their associated power electronics. He has worked extensively on energy harvesting system optimisation and simulation and along with his colleagues was the first to demonstrate the first working micro electrostatic energy harvesting device. His recent work is on gravitational torque energy harvesting structures and the application of energy harvesting techniques to sensor networks for water quality monitoring.
