Summary

BSc in Maths and Physics and a MSc in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Auckland. After a period working for the Geophysical Company of Norway he did a PhD in Applied Mathematics at Oxford Brookes University. He was Senior Lecturer in Numerical Analysis at Oxford Brookes University for ten years before moving to Rutherford Appleton Laboratory as Leader of Terrestrial Systems in the Radio Communications Research Unit. Later he moved to the University of Hull where he is Senior Lecturer in Telecommunications.

Research interests

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.
