elianeEliane L. Bodanese (MSc, PhD, MIEEE, MIET) is a senior lecturer at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, a member of the Communication Systems Research Group and of the Centre for Intelligent Sensing in QMUL. She has published more than 50 refereed journal/conference papers and her research interests include sensor networks and the Internet of Things, human activity detection and recognition through minimal non-intrusive sensing, indoor and outdoor localization, communication support for emergencies, heterogeneous wireless environments, cooperative communications, ad hoc and delay tolerant networks. Eliane’s research projects have been sponsored by EPSRC in the area of alternative and resilient communication for emergencies and sensor networks and in using wireless networks to support first responders and resilience in upland areas. The real demonstrators developed on those grants in sensors networks, delay tolerant networks and in messaging middleware have been showcased. She has also been sponsored by BT in the work in Internet centric services. Eliane is a member of the EPSRC Associate Peer Review College, and she is a reviewer of numerous journals and conferences.

KRKhalid Rajab is co-founder of NodeNs Medical, and also holds a faculty post at Queen Mary University of London. He has extensive experience in technologies including wireless communications from radio frequency to mmWave, active and reconfigurable antennas and electronics, and location sensing; his research interests have included esoteric topics such as metamaterials, invisibility cloaks, and quantum-inspired algorithms for musical analysis. His work has been featured in the popular media, both in the UK and internationally, including by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC; Canada), Scientific American (Chinese edition), and Science Radio (USA). He holds degrees in electrical engineering (PhD, BSc) and mathematics (MA) from Penn State University.

KRJun Chen is a Senior Lecturer in Engineering Science at QMUL. He has published more than 50 scientific papers in areas of multi-objective optimisation, interpretable fuzzy systems, data-driven modelling, and intelligent transportation systems. Dr Chen was among the first researchers to investigate the trade-off between taxi time and fuel consumption in airport ground movements (EP/H004424/2), and proposed the Active Routing (AR) concept. AR forms the cornerstone of a major ongoing EPSRC funded project (EP/N029496/1, EP/N029356/1 and EP/N029577/1, in total in excess of £1M) for which Dr Chen is the lead PI (with BAEs, AirFrance-KLM, Rolls Royce, Manchester and Zurich Airports, and Simio plc.). He has also been the PI on EPSRC-QMUL IAA projects, four industrial projects with Anglian Water, and was the CI on three Innovate UK projects (with IMS and Tesco plc, and Siemens). From 2016, he serves as an associate member of the EPSRC Peer Review College. He is also a Turing Fellow at Alan Turing Institute.
