I spent six years at The University of Kent at Canterbury, both as an
undergraduate ( studying Computer Science through Electronics ), and a postgraduate ( in Medical Electronics ).
I was researching a replacement
for 24 hour ambulatory monitoring, also known as Holter Monitoring
with a realtime analysis system. I was looking at two approaches. The first involved simple band pass filtering to
identify the individual components
of an ECQ ( P, QRS, and T waves) in order to make clinical measurements and record abnormal traces. I then compared that
with n-tuple nural networks
specifically trained from a library of "normal" and "abnormal" ECG recordings. A combination of the two techniques could then be used to
identify and record only the interesting ECG traces rather than the full 24hours of data.
The code is available on GitHub
I got to earn a little money whilst I was doing my Ph.D. research supervising C classes for the second year electronics
undergraduates. They were using new editor tools on a new operating system
(the new Windows NT had just been deployed across the site), and that had
caused many teething troubles. So I produced some
help pages to assist the students.
It is provided here more as a curiosity, although if you are trying to
use a windows c compiler with PFE it might be helpful to you. :-)
Star Trek Society
Throughout my time at University I was on the Committee of the Star Trek
Society (Founding Committee Member in fact). I was Secretary, and when some
bright sparks invented the World Wide Web, I also took
on the responsibility of Webmaster for the society home pages. Alas the
website is no more as the web server in question was taken down a number of
years ago. However you can still view the old pages via the trusty
Way Back Machine.
Possibly the best part of the site was
The UK Convention Diary
that I administered. It would seem that at the time it had become the definitive resource
if you wanted to go to a Star Trek or Sci-Fi Convention in the UK. So it is unfortunate that the server no longer exists.
