Geoff Merrett is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. He received the BEng (1st, Hons) and PhD degrees in Electronic Engineering from Southampton in 2004 and 2009 respectively. His research interests are in energy-aware and self-powered computing systems, with application across the spectrum from highly constrained IoT devices to many-core mobile and embedded systems. Dr Merrett is a Co-Investigator on the EPSRC-funded £5.6M PRiME Programme Grant (where he leads the applications and cross-layer interaction theme), the £11.6M SPHERE IRC, and “Continuous on-line adaptation in many-core systems: From graceful degradation to graceful amelioration”. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles in these areas, and given invited talks at a number of international events. He is technical manager of Southampton’s ARM-ECS Research Centre, an award-winning industry-academia collaboration between the University of Southampton and Arm.
He coordinates IoT research at the University, and leads the wireless sensing theme of its Pervasive Systems Centre. He is an Associate Editor for the IET CDS journal, serves as a reviewer for a number of leading journals, and on TPCs for a range of conferences. He co-manages the UK’s Energy Harvesting Network, was General Chair of the ACM Workshop on Energy-Harvesting and Energy-Neutral Sensing Systems in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and is the General Chair of the European Workshop on Microelectronics Education 2016. He is a member of the IEEE, IET and Fellow of the HEA.
