Paul Mitchell received the M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of York in 1999 and 2003, respectively.
His Ph.D. research was on medium access control for satellite systems, which was supported by British Telecom. He has over 20 years research experience in wireless communications, and industrial experience gained at BT and DERA (now QinetiQ).
He has been a member of academic staff in the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of York since 2005, and is now full Professor. Primary research interests lie in underwater acoustic communication networks, terrestrial wireless sensor networks, and communication protocols; including the development of novel medium access control and routing strategies. Other related interests include machine learning, traffic modelling, queuing theory, satellite and mobile communication systems. Professor Mitchell is an author of over 150 refereed journal and conference papers and he has served on numerous international conference programme committees including ICC and VTC.
He was General Chair of the International Symposium on Wireless Communications Systems in 2010. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the IET Wireless Sensor Systems journal, the International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks and MDPI Electronics, and has experience as Guest Editor and as a reviewer for a number of IEEE, ACM and IET journals. He has secured more than >£3.8M + €4.7M funding as principal and co-investigator. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the IET.
