Summary

Kevin Paulson was the first in the world to find evidence of the effects of climate change on radio telecommunications and was co-author of the UK's Climate Change Evidence Report 2017. His main area of expertise is in stochastic signal processing which he is applying to medical engineering and radio propagation. Dr Paulson is a member of ITU-R UK Study Group 3 coordinating propagation studies. More recently he has focused on the analysis of ECG and EEG signals measured with ambulatory systems.
