Dr. John Buckley is a Staff Researcher and Team Leader for the RF Circuits and Systems Group in the Wireless Sensor Network Group at the Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork. He received the BEng degree from the Department of Electronic Engineering in Cork Institute of Technology in 1994, the MEngSc degree from the department of Microelectronic Engineering, University College Cork in 2004 and the Ph. D degree from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Cork in 2016. His doctoral thesis focused on the development of antenna tuning solutions for wearable wireless sensor network devices. From 1994 to 2002, John worked with EMC Ireland where he was responsible for the design and development of high-speed digital test solutions for data storage products. In 2005, John joined the Wireless Sensing Systems, Microelectronics Centre at the Tyndall National Institute where his research focuses on electrical modelling and measurement of microwave circuits and antennas for wireless sensor applications in both academic and industry driven research projects.He is the author/co-author of more than 50 research papers in the fields of antenna and microwave design for wireless sensor applications.
