 Personal information
First name, Surname:   Hugh Griffiths
Title:   Prof.
Organisation:   UCL



Hugh Griffiths was born in Bournemouth, UK, in 1956. He was educated at Hardye’s School, Dorchester, and Keble College, Oxford where he received the MA degree in Physics in 1975. He also received the PhD (1986) and DSc(Eng) (2000) degrees from the University of London.

Since 1985 he has been with University College London, where he is currently Head of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. His research interests include radar and sonar systems and signal processing (particularly synthetic aperture radar and bistatic and multistatic radar) as well as antennas and antenna measurement techniques, and he has published over 300 papers and technical articles on these subjects. He received the IERE Lord Brabazon Premium in 1984, the IEE Mountbatten and Maxwell Premiums in 1996, and the IEEE Fred Nathanson Award in 1996. He serves on the IEEE AESS Board of Governors and on the IEEE AESS Radar Systems Panel, and as Hon. Editor of IEE Proceedings on Radar, Sonar and Navigation, and he served as Chairman of the IEE International Radar Conference RADAR 2002 in Edinburgh, UK. He also serves on the Defence Scientific Advisory Council for the UK Ministry of Defence, and on the Supervisory Board for the UK Ministry of Defence’s Defence Technology Centre in ElectroMagnetic Remote Sensing. He is a Fellow of the IEE, Fellow of the IEEE, and in 1997 he was elected to Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
