Professor David Brown
Professor of Industrial Systems
I joined Portsmouth in 1998, having previously worked in industry as the Managing Director of automation and diagnostics company, Technical Director within Cambridge Electronic Industries and a lecturer at the University of Southampton.
I set up and am now Director of the Institute of Industrial Research, undertaking a number of concurrent RKT projects. Over the past two years the Institute team has attracted nearly £2,000,000 in funding from commercial research partners.
I direct teams in the following areas of research and knowledge transfer:
- Data Analysis (identifying patterns of behaviour in data (fault diagnostics and prognostics))
- Traffic Analysis and Resource Management
- Intelligent Robotics
- Image Processing
- Monitoring Systems and Ambient Intelligence
