David Boyle is a Research Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. He is a member of the Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group, with research interests at the intersection of wireless sensing, actuation and control systems, data analytics, and the digital economy.

David received his PhD in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland, in 2009, for his work in the area of security for wireless sensor networks, having graduated with a B. Eng. (Hons) in Computer Engineering in 2005. His work has been recognised and awarded internationally, and published in the leading technical journals.  

Before joining Imperial, David worked with Wireless Sensor Network and Microelectronics Applications Integration Groups in the Microsystems Centre at Tyndall National Institute, and the Embedded Systems Research Group, University College Cork, Ireland, developing ‘green' wireless sensor networks. Previously, he was with Orange Labs, France, and a Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar at the Higher Technical School of Telecommunications Engineering, Technical University of Madrid (ETSIT UPM).
