Professor Stephen Marshall

Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Personal statement

I am a Professor in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering where I am also Director of the Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) Centre. The Centre carries out pure and applied research into all aspects of HSI and currently has 11 staff and researchers.

I am also the University's academic lead for the Verically Integrated Project (VIP) Program which brings together students, researchers and staff from across disciplines and academic years to tackle challenging problems.
