Dr. Marina Cole has a background in resonant sensors based on piezoelectric materials and instrumentation. Her research interests are also in integrated silicon-based sensors, analogue, digital and mixed signal ASIC devices, smart sensors, actuators and microsystems. Dr. Marina Cole joined the Smart Sensors and Devices Research Group at Warwick University in 1996 as a post-doctoral research assistant. For two years she worked on the EPSRC funded project on the design of an intelligent gas array sensor for environmental monitoring. Dr Cole was appointed to a lectureship in electronic engineering and became a member of the Electrical & Electronic Engineering Division in September 1998 and since then she has been working in parallel in the areas of smart CMOS gas sensors and SAW sensors for liquid applications. She is currently supervising 3 PhD students and one MPhil student and has EPSRC funding for the development of novel implementation techniques for a wavelet-based broadband signal detection system. Dr Cole has published over 30 technical papers in scientific journals, edited books and at the international conferences. Dr Cole is a member of the technical program committee for the IEEE Sensors conference (2002-2006) and a reviewer for Sensors & Actuators and IEEE Sensors Journal.
