Dr Felix Ngobigha is a Lecturer in Network Engineering at the School of Engineering Arts, Science, and Technology, University of Suffolk, UK. He holds a PhD in Computing and Electronic Systems, an MSc in Telecommunication and Information Systems from the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, the University of Essex in 2016 and 2005, respectively. In 2001, he received a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Rivers State University of Science & Technology, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.
Prior to joining the University of Suffolk, he has worked as a Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) Associate, Research Officer, and a Visiting Research Fellow position at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex from 2016 to 2020. He held a Lecturership position at the Department of Electrical/Electronic, Niger Delta University, Bayelsa State, Nigeria, between 2004 and 2011. From 2001 to 2004, he was a Scientific Officer with the Centre for Satellite Technology Development an activity centre of the National Space Research and Development Agency, Abuja, Nigeria.
Felix’s current research interest covers electromagnetic wave propagation and scattering with applications on weather radars and remote sensing, microwave & antenna theory, wireless systems development, high-level digital design (FPGA and Microcontroller), network modelling and simulations, and high-speed train communication network with a major objective of bridging theory and practice. He is interested in research problems that arise in practical communication and/or electromagnetics scenarios. He has authored and co-authored several scientific publications in recognised (peer-reviewed journals, conferences, and technical reports) and invited/tutorial talks.
Felix is interested in IoT, Software-Defined Networking, and applying machine learning to improve wireless communications. He has contributed to EU projects such as CHARISMA and iCirrus. Additionally, he participated in Innovate UK industry-led collaborative projects with LPA Connection Systems/University of Essex.
Outside the University of Suffolk, he is a member of the following professional bodies; IEEE and the IET. He is a member of the IEEE International Conference on Theoretical and Applied Computer Science and Engineering Scientific Committee. Furthermore, he is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and open to collaborating with research fellows/potential PhD students to push forward the exciting forefront of communications research.
