Dr Gerard Edwards

Faculty of Engineering and Technology

Gerard started working as a Principal Lecturer in the Electronic & Electrical Engineering Division, School of Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, in Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) from Sep. 2021. Gerard is the Programme Leader for the suite of Electronic & Electrical Engineering MSc degrees Electrical Power And Control Engineering, Embedded Systems & IC Design and Wireless Communications, offered at LJMU.

Gerard pursued postdoctoral work at the Centre for Solid State Electronics Research, Arizona State University, USA, and the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Notre Dame, USA. He then worked as a Senior Lecturer, Programme Leader in the Department of Computer Science and then the Department of Engineering at the University of Bolton. He moved to the University of Chester in 2014 to lead the development of the new Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
