Prof Danielle George looking through a magnifying glass

Hear Danielle George, Professor of Radio Frequency Engineering at The University of Manchester, talk about Marconi's impact on the world of radio astronomy and the new age of instrumentation, including  the Internet of Things (IoT).

Danielle will explore the potential of the IoT and how the discoveries made by the SKA and ALMA will widen the scope of Marconi’s work.

Danielle completed her BSc in Astrophysics, MSc in Radio Astronomy and her PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. She was awarded a professorship at the age of 38 and appointed MBE in the 2016 Queen’s honours list for services to engineering through public engagement.

Her television appearances include BBC One North West's Nation of Inventors, BBC Two's Search for a New Earth with Professor Stephen Hawking – looking at the engineering and science required for space travel and terraforming other planets, and BBC Four's Rise of the Robots.

To date, Danielle's research has focused on delivering class-leading, ultra-low noise receivers for space and aerospace applications.
