Biography

Dr Princy Johnson has received her PhD from King’s College London. During her tenure at Nortel Networks UK Ltd. she had a patent issued for a novel re-configurable OADM. Her research interests include energy-efficient protocols for wireless sensor and mobile networks and biased random algorithms for resilience in heterogeneous networks and data fields. An avid collaborator and a registered PRINCE2 ® practitioner she has put together a cohesive collaborative team from across Europe and coordinated the consortium through research activities and various UK and EU funding application processes. She is an executive committee member of Rail Research UK Association (RRUKA) since September 2011. She has successfully completed several leadership training including the StellarHE leadership in 2014/15. She has been recognised as a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), UK in 2014.
