Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Michael Opoku Agyeman is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) of the IET and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (UK) who is a Senior Lecturer and the Programme Leader of BEng, HND, MEng Computer Systems Engineering at the Department of Computing at the University of Northampton, UK.

Michael is the 2018/19 Elected Senate representative for academic Staff from the Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology (FAST) at the University of Northampton. He is an Associate member of the Chartered Management Institute (ACMI). Previously, he was with Intel Embedded System Research group of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) as a Research Fellow, where he worked on reliable wireless Network-on-Chip solutions.

He received the PhD in Embedded and Distributed Systems from Glasgow Caledonian University, UK, in 2014 and the MSc. degree in Embedded and Distributed Systems from London South Bank University, UK, in 2009. Michael received the BSc. (Hons.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, in 2008.

He is the author of one book and over 50 publications in major conference proceedings and journals. His research interests include VLSI SoC design, computer architecture, reconfigurable computing, wired and wireless NoCs, smart rehabilitation solutions, embedded systems and Internet-of-Things (IoT).

He has been a Guest Editor of the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Industrial Networks and Intelligent Systems. Michael is currently a reviewer of several conferences and journals including IEEE TVLSI and TCAD. His work on wireless NoCs have attracted two best paper awards in IEEE/IFIP 14th International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing in 2016 (EUC) and Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) 2016.

He is the receiver of the UoN’s 2018 International Changemaker of the year award. He serves as a Technical Committee Member (TPC) of over 10 conferences including IEEE ICCSN, IEEE ICBDA, ICIIP and ICBDSC.
