Reader in Control Engineering and Optimization
Dr Eric Kerrigan has a joint appointment in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Department of Aeronautics. From 2001-2005 he was a Research Fellow at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, where he obtained a PhD in 2001. His research is focused on the development of efficient numerical methods and computer architectures for solving optimisation-based control and estimation problems in real-time, with applications in aerospace, renewable energy and computing systems. His research has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the European Commission, Xilinx, The Mathworks, National Instruments, ESA, EADS Innovation Works and Siemens.
Head of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Eric M. Yeatman FREng, FIEEE has been a member of academic staff in Imperial College London since 1989, and Professor of Micro-Engineering since 2005. He was appointed Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Sept. 2015. He has published more than 200 papers and patents on optical devices and materials, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), and other topics. In 2011 he was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering Silver Medal, and was made a Fellow of the Academy in 2012. He is Co-Director of the college's Digital Economy Lab.
Prof. Yeatman is also co-founder and non-executive director of Microsaic Systems plc, which listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2011. Microsaic develops and markets miniature mass spectrometers based on MEMS technology, and is the first company to introduce a miniature mass spectrometer for liquid analysis to the market. Prof. Yeatman was Chairman of Microsaic from 2004-2013, and acting CEO from Jan-Nov 2012.
He has been principal or co-investigator on more than 20 research projects, with over £18M in research funds raised. He has acted as a design consultant for several international companies, and technical advisory board member to two venture capital funds. His current research interests are in energy sources for wireless devices, radio frequency and photonic MEMS, sensor networks, and 2D materials.
Professor in Applied Computational Logic
I am a Professor in Applied Computational Logic at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, and academic member of the Distributed Software Engineering Section. I lead the Structured and Probabilistic Knowledge Engineering (SPIKE) research group and my research interests are in the the areas of in Computational Logic, Logic-based Symbolic Learning, Probabilistic and Distributed Inference, and their applications to Intelligent Adaptive Systems, Security, Network Management, Distributed Control Systems for Sensor Networks, and System Biology. I am also Editor-in-Chief of the IET Software Journal, Associated Editor of the ACM Computing Survey Journal, and Director of Postgraduate Research.
Professor of Computer Science, Department of Computing
Michael Huth is Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science at Imperial College London. He is a Diplom-Mathematiker (TU Darmstadt, Germany), obtained his PhD in 1991 (Tulane University of Louisiana, USA), was an Assistant Professor at Kansas State University from 1996-2001, and completed several postdoctoral studies in the US, Germany, and the UK on programming language semantics and design, formal verification, and probabilistic modelling. His present research focusses on cybersecurity, especially modelling and reasoning about the interplay of trust, security, risk, and economics. Currently funded projects of his include work on confidence building in arms verification and work on blockchain technology for centrally governed systems such as IoT. He is the Technical Lead of the Theme Harnessing Economic Value in the PETRAS IoT Research Hub and he is also active as research and product advisor in the London and Berlin Cybersecurity startup scene.

I am member of the following research groups:
- Structured and Probabilistic Intelligent Knowledge Engineering (SPIKE)
- Algorithmic Society Lab, Data Science Institute
- Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering
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).
